Ha, that is sooo corny and I love it.

There is nothing easier than spaghetti carbonara. Carbonara is normally 4 great ingredients with black pepper. Pasta, pancetta, egg and parmesan cheese.

I kicked this  one up a bit with some garlic, basil, white wine and chives to garnish.

Bacon has also come to be “the ingredient” since it is usually what I have on hand. I also love fettucini. I think originally this dish used penne pasta, but I’m not Italian so what do I know.

SERVINGS 4

1 garlic clove, minced
10 slices bacon chopped
3/4 cup white wine
1 tablespoon fresh chopped basil
3 eggs
1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
Salt and pepper to taste
10 ounces fettuccine pasta cooked al dente

Chives to garnish

In a large pot fry chopped bacon to crisp. Drain the grease and then add the wine to deglaze the pan. Add your garlic and basil, salt and pepper.

In a separate bowl beat your eggs and add your parmesan cheese.

Combine your cooked pasta in the pan with the bacon and while still hot begin pouring the egg and cheese over the pasta and bacon, stirring well as you pour. The egg mixture will thicken into a sauce as you stir the hot mixture.

Garnish with chives.
Serve immediately.
