Spaghetti Carbonara

  • Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 pound(s) spaghetti
  • 8 slice(s) bacon cut 1inch thick cross wise
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup(s) grated Parmeson cheese, plus more for serving
  • 1/2 cup(s) half-and-half


Set a large pot of water to boil (for pasta). In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 8 to 12 minutes; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.

Salt boiling water generously; add pasta and cook until al dente, according to package instructions.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together eggs, Parmesan, and half-and-half. Set aside.

Drain pasta, leaving some water clinging to it. Working quickly, add hot pasta to egg mixture. Add bacon; season with salt and pepper, and toss all to combine (heat from pasta will cook eggs). Serve immediately, sprinkled with additional Parmesan cheese.
