1/1 Photo of Spaghetti Carbonara
Timing is everything when making spaghetti carbonara. Have the egg/parmesan mix ready to go the moment that you drain the spaghetti, and mix the spaghetti into the parmesan/egg immediately after draining. The heat cooks the egg and makes it creamy, so your goal is for the spaghetti to lose as little heat as possible between draining and stirring into the egg/parmesan. You also want the spaghetti to still be a little drippy and wet. I added the bacon/peas at the same moment, although this is not as important as keeping the spaghetti hot. I found that the timing worked out well if I began frying the bacon at the same time that I began boiling the spaghetti. But timing is the only "tricky" thing. Overall this is a simple recipe that comes together quickly with just a few basic ingredients to create a tasty comfort food that everyone loves.
