“SPAGHETTI a la CARBONARA”…un pasto squisito

I have had this delicious spaghetti dish many times and it is one of my favorites. My nephew gave me the recipe in 1983 when he returned from a summer spent in Parma, Italy.

Serves 6: 1 lb bacon, white wine (or chicken stock,
1 large onion, diced. 4 to 5 eggs,
Butter, Oregano,
Parmesan Cheese, 16 chopped mushrooms,
1 ½ lbs spaghetti.

Saute chopped bacon and diced onion slowly and season...add some butter if dry. Add chopped mushrooms and wine (or chicken stock) to taste. Cook a bit more.

Meanwhile, mix 4-5 eggs in a bowl with a good handful of grated parmesan cheese. Add pepper, mix.

Cook spaghetti and drain in colander and replace in the hot pot. Mix spaghetti with your egg mixture ( the raw egg mixture gets solid & cooked by the heat of the cooked spaghetti). Then pour the bacon mixture over and toss together. Serve immediately.

I include more grated parmesan and black pepper on the table, and serve with a green salad and crusty Italian bread. This is a festive and simple meal, truly an exquisite pasta...un pasto squisito

Ummm! Yummy. I love it. Another of my favourites is Tortellini cooked with butter and whole 'sprigs' of basil. Simple but delicious.

Writing on any subject is not an easy task, when you write on any subject it is very difficult. Anyone who thinks that he will write something easily on any subject, then his thinking is very wrong, I do not know that perhaps those people will have to put so much mind. Whatever you have written in your post, it has been written very beautifully, you are a person writing a good post, the more you are praised, the less it is.
