Sam's Birth Day Spaghetti Carbonara

Sam's Birth Day Spaghetti Carbonara created by Parsley

This was dinner the night I went into labor with my first son; every year since we've had this for his birthday celebration! Served with spinach salad, it makes a well-rounded meal!

    Fantastic and so easy. Made it on a clean out the fridge/cupboard/freezer week!!!! Perfect!

    I cooked a chopped onion in the pan til translucent, because that's the way my mother always made it, but this was fast and delicious and just right for a weeknight meal.

    This was my first time making Spaghetti Carbonara and it was recommended by Mandy Sue (above). I couldn't believe how good it was! Using raw egg was a bit different for us. I added it to the pan mixture and cooked it a little longer just to be safe since I'm pregnant. It turned out great and my husband loved it! We used maple flavored bacon which added something extra to the recipe. We will DEFINITELY make this again soon! Thanks for sharing!

    Super. I had never had spaghetti carbonara before, this was a wonderful easy introduction. My whole family loved it, including two picky toddlers. I was a little nervous about the raw egg so I zapped it in the microwave for a few to make sure it was done. Excellent recipe thanks for sharing
