Spaghetti Carbonara

April 3, 2011

After a few weeks of break, i decided that this weekend there should be no excuse that i should skip making a new dish. I had always been thinking about doing something with pasta and after looking around the net for a while, i decided on Spaghetti Carbonara with very simple ingredients.

Ingredients
• 3/4 packet of Linguine
• Olive oil
• 4 hotdogs, sliced very thinly
• 2 onion, chopped
• 3 cloves garlic, minced
• 5 eggs
• 1/2 cup grated Parmesan/cheese of your choice
• 1 pinch salt and black pepper to taste
• Handful of chopped fresh parsley

– It is difficult to find halal bacon, hence i used hotdogs. Trust me they gave almost the same taste like those pastas you eat out.

Method:

1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook linguine pasta until al dente (firm but not hard). Drain well. Toss with 2 tablespoon of olive oil, and set aside. Meanwhile in a separate pan (with little olive oil), fry bacon until crisp; remove and put it aside.

2. Add chopped onion, and cook over medium heat until onion is translucent. Add minced garlic, and cook.

3. Return cooked bacon to pan; add cooked and drained spaghetti. Toss to coat and heat through, adding more olive oil if it seems dry or is sticking together.

4. Add beaten eggs and cook, tossing constantly with tongs or large fork until eggs are barely set. Quickly add 1/2 cup cheese, and toss again.

5. Add salt and pepper to taste (remember that bacon and Parmesan are very salty). There you go, tasty & healthy Spaghetti Carbonara!
