Easy and Indulgent Spaghetti Carbonara

    Spaghetti Carbonara is a creamy and delicious alternative when you are tired of just plain old spaghetti and crave something a bit more exciting.  This Spaghetti Carbonara is the perfect solution.  It is really rich and so good.  It's perfect for a weekend meal or to serve for company.  Everyone is sure to love it.
  • 16 oz. spaghetti
  • 1 c. Parmesan cheese
  • 1 c. peas, frozen
  • 8-10 strips thick cut bacon, cooked and diced or cut
  • 4 lg. eggs
  • 1 1/2 T. olive oil
  • 1 T. parsley
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. chopped onion
  • 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
     In a large pot of water, add in the salt and bring the water to a boil.  Once it boils, add in the spaghetti and cook it until al dente.  As you wait for the water to boil, get a large skillet and add in the oil and cook the onion and garlic and cook them over medium heat for one minute.  Stir in the bacon.
    In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and then stir in half of the Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.  Set aside.
    Once the spaghetti is cooked, drain it and add it into the skillet.  Stir. Stir in the egg/cheese mixture and peas and cook it until the eggs are cooked (but not scrambled). Once everything is hot, it is ready to serve.  Be sure to sprinkle on the rest of the Parmesan cheese and parsley on top.  Enjoy.
    Serves 8.  Each serving has about 45 carbs.
