This classic Spaghetti Carbonara is a simple pasta dish that takes just about 20 minutes to make and always hits the spot.

It combines perfectly cooked noodles, crispy bacon, and a rich and creamy sauce made with eggs, Parmesan cheese, and freshly ground black pepper.


– Spaghetti Pasta – Bacon – Egg Yolks – Parmesan Cheese – Frozen Peas

Cook the pasta in salted water until al dente according to package directions. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water before straining the water.


Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook until crisp and golden brown. Remove from the heat and transfer the bacon bits to a paper towel lined plate using a slotted spoon. Reserve the bacon grease in the pan.


When the pasta is cooked and drained, add it to the skillet with the bacon grease and toss with tongs.


In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, salt, and pepper. Continue to whisk while adding a steady stream of about ½ cup of the reserved pasta water to the beaten eggs.


Add the egg mixture to the pasta while stirring and tossing with tongs. Continue to toss until the pasta is completely coated.
