  • Turn on your boombox with some loud rock music.
  • Boil water for spaghetti as you normally would.
  • Mix egg yolks and cream together and set aside.
  • In a saute pan, place olive oil, bacon, and garlic, to cook over low heat, till bacon is crisp.
  • Make sure to cook the bacon very slowly.

  • Drain pasta and place into a large pot or bowl.
  • Add bacon mix and toss once.
  • Add egg/cream mix and cheese, toss again.
  • These last three steps should be done very quickly to cook the egg mixture, and spread the cheese evenly.

  • My choice on wine is Johanisberg Reisling.
  • Rock on!

    This recipe was pretty good. I didn't use onion as that is not in an original carbonara. I increased the parmesan cheese to 1 cup and I think what is most important is to mix the egg and parmesan together and then add to the bacon and pasta once you're at that point. At the end, I added about 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. The bit of white wine makes this recipe.

    yum gunnar! very good recipe. I'm making it again as I rate this. Very good and simple ingredients. Sorry chef chuck love didn't even try this, only decided to be a critic. I really don't care if something is authentic or not, love the ingredients, love this ease of prep, and love the taste! Can't wait for supper! Thumbs up to you!!!!

    I like to pretend that the spaghetti is little worms and the carbonara sauce is special man-sauce

    I think it is safe to say I'm obsessed with this recipe. I have made it twice now and just purchased ingredients to make it a third, this time for my parents and brother instead of my boyfriend... I hope they like it as much as we do! I add a little extra cream and an extra egg to make it a little more saucy. Overall, it has delicious, rich flavor and is even great cold for leftovers. YUMMM.
