"Clueless" Recipe- Spaghetti "Carbonara"


I finally got the chance to make this Italian dish from Rome. I tried to make it as authentic as I can but things don't always go as planned and I was like… Fuhgeddaboudit. I've found different versions and after getting a few ideas, I made it my way with ingredients I already had on hand. 

INGREDIENTS:
-Spaghetti
-Parmesan Cheese
-Bacon
-2 Eggs
-Garlic
-Black Pepper

Cook pasta according to package directions; whisk eggs and parmesan cheese in a bowl together and set aside; heat pan on medium heat and add cut pieces of bacon; cook until crisp; add garlic and seasonings along the way; add pasta and let it cook; remove pan from heat then add egg and cheese mixture stirring the whole time making sure eggs don't scramble; add carbonara to plate; season with black pepper and more cheese if you like.

Fun Fact: The Italian word carbonaro means charcoal worker. Word is that this dish was made for Italian coal workers. Also the black pepper is suppose to resemble coal flakes.
