Who needs Parmesan Cheese?
We just had such a yummy dinner thanks to Denise V. and the Sunnyslope Cookbook! I have never made Spaghetti Carbonara before and it was so good. Two thumbs up from everyone but Jori, and even she ate the small amount we gave her. We did not have Parmesan cheese, but Gouda made a decent substitute. Having a little extra bacon probably helped up the deliciousness factor as well!
½ pound spaghetti noodles, 4 strips bacon, 1 T oil, ¼ cup onion chopped, 1 clove garlic minced, 2 eggs beaten, ¼ cup parmesan cheese grated, dash salt, dash pepper
Boil pasta. Fry bacon and remove when crispy. Add olive oil to bacon grease and then add the onion and cook until clear. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Return bacon to pan and add noodles. Add oil if sticky. Add beaten eggs and cook until eggs are done. Add parmesan cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
We had cooked our bacon in the oven the day before, so we did not have bacon grease, but it was still delish! We just need to find a place to get more reasonably priced bacon and we’ll be making this again for sure!
