Spaghetti Carbonara: A Fancy Weeknight Dinner

So at this point you already know, I only make easy recipes. Lately I’ve been trying to mix up my dinner meals. Lucky for my roommate I took a night off from rice and chicken, my go to meal. (Can you see I’m not a cook?) Instead I really challenged myself and made my favorite Italian dish. Spaghetti Carbonara! Doesn’t it just sound fancy? So from start to finish this only took me about a half hour, and for someone with a very short attention span this was perfect!  This turned out to be the perfect busy weeknight fancy dinner. ( I loosely followed Tyler Florence’s Recipe)

Ingredients:

  • 1 Lb of dry spaghetti
  • Olive Oil
  • 4 Garlic Cloves
  • Half a package of bacon
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Cup of grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Parsley (to make it pretty)
  • 1 cup of frozen peas

Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat

Add olive oil to cover the skillet

Chop up a half package of bacon into cubes

Dice up garlic

Add bacon and garlic to skillet

While the bacon and garlic are cooking, boil spaghetti until al dente in a large separate pot. While the Spaghetti is boiling whisk together the eggs and parmesan cheese in a separate bowl.

Once the spaghetti is cooked to al dente and drained, pour it into the skillet with the bacon and garlic.
