Recipe: Pasta Carbonara

Real Estate Agent with CATARRA CA BRE# 01871201

For some strange reason I was craving bacon and eggs and pasta after my run this am.  As usual, I had little time to get ready for my appointment with my client but I decided I would try making Pasta Carbonara.  It was easy and delicious.  I used a couple of recipes to make this version.  Satified my bacon, eggs and pasta craving.


2 slices of bacon cooked until very crispy.  Dry off with paper towel and crumble.  Add a clove of garlic and about a tsp of onion to some bacon fat.  Cook until done.  


In a bowl add one egg yolk, a tsp of cream black pepper to taste, mix together.  Grate about an oz of cheese into the mixture.  Add cooled bacon and onion/garlic


Make pasta (we are crazy for bacatini these days) drain and toss with the egg,cheese bacon mixture and serve!

Carla, I didn't have any such cravings after my bike ride this morning since I am vegetarian. That said, I craved the raisin bread I prepared before my ride, left it to rise during my ride and baked it while taking a shower. Great fresh sweet bread was all this girl needed.

I appreciate your recipe nevertheless.
