Spaghetti Alla Carbonara

Recipe by mermaidmagic

Another one of Angelo's dishes. Note that the cooked pasta needs to be added immediately to the raw egg mixture in order to cook the egg.

fried a little bacon - chopped - in a non-stick wok....removed the browned bacon and poured off most of the bacon fat. added a chopped garlic clove and some green onion chopped to the remaining grease and softened by heating....added the drained pasta to the wok and the bacon bits...poured the egg/cream/cheese mixture on top of the pasta, stirred and re-heated until i was sure the eggs had cooked...plated and added additional cheese....i think that next time i prepare that iam going to increase the cream amount by 1.5....for me, my first result was a little dry.....great recipe.
