Spaghetti Carbonara

Carbonara sauce is typically made with just Italian bacon, eggs, cheese, and black pepper. A little half-and-half creates an even silkier texture.

Ingredients

  • 1

    pound(s) spaghetti

  • 8

    ounce(s) (8 slices) bacon, cut 1-inch-thick crosswise

  • Coarse salt

  • Freshly ground pepper

  • 3

    large eggs

  • 3/4

    cup(s) grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving

  • 1/2

    cup(s) half-and-half

Directions

1.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. 2.Salt boiling water generously; add pasta and cook until al dente, according to package instructions. 3.Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together eggs, Parmesan, and half-and-half. Set aside. 4.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.
