Spaghetti Carbonara

Spaghetti Carbonara is a simple dish that is such a crown pleaser in our house- it is gone in a flash! It is a great weeknight meal when you have just a little time to whip up something flavorful and satisfying.

Spaghetti Carbonara

1 pound spaghetti
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 slices bacon, diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot, cook spaghetti until al dents and toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and set aside.
In large skillet, cook chopped bacon until slightly crisp, remove and drain on paper towels. Reserve 1 tablespoon bacon fat, add remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and heat in the skillet that you used to cook the bacon. Add chopped onion, cook over medium heat until translucent, add garlic and cook 1 minute more.
Add spaghetti to pan with onions and add beaten eggs, tossing constantly with tongs or a fork until eggs are barely set. Quickly add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and toss again. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serve immediately with chopped parsley on top and sprinkle with a little extra Parmesan. Enjoy!
