Easy Italian Spaghetti Carbonara

A really good spaghetti carbonara is easy to make and delicious if made properly by a true authentic Italian recipe.


  • 8 slices of thick cut bacon
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic finely chopped
  • 8 egg yolks
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • ¼ cup parsley finely chopped
  • Fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Chop bacon slices into squares of about 1 inch. In a medium sized skillet over medium heat cook garlic and bacon in olive oil. Cook slowly until bacon is crispy but not over done. Remove from skillet and pat excess oil off with paper towel.

Using a medium bowl, beat egg yolks and add salt and pepper. Set aside.

While bacon is cooking, bring a medium pot of water to boil. Break pasta in half and add to boiling water. You will need to cook pasta for about 8 minutes, or until soft. Remove from stove, drain and place cooked pasta in a large bowl.

Add egg yolks, parsley, bacon, and garlic to the pasta and mix thoroughly with the hot pasta in the large bowl. Remember the egg yolks are actually cooked by the hot pasta, so make sure you mix them thoroughly with the pasta as soon as you drain the pasta and it is still hot. Add salt and pepper to taste. Fresh grate parmesan cheese to top with.

    We prepared this dish , it was terrific. I am certainly not what you’d call an experienced cook, and simply tend not to relish baffling recipes which get me stressed when I’m cooking. This really is very easy and flavorful, great along with a little red wine. Thanks a lot.
