Bacon Carbonara Pasta






  • 2 eggs
  • 4-6 slices of bacon
  • 1 tbsp of butter
  • 85g of spaghetti or linguine
  • ¼ cup cheese
  • Salt and pepper


  • Cut the bacon into small pieces.
  • Heat the butter in a frying pan over medium heat and fry the bacon. Stir the bacon until the pieces are brown. When brown, empty the bacon pieces onto a plate.
  • Lightly salt and boil the water. When the water is at a rolling boil, add the pasta and cook approximately 7-9 minutes, or until al dente.
  • Break the eggs into a large bowl and mix them with the grated cheese and bacon.
  • When ready, drain the pasta. Immediately add the pasta with the eggs, cheese, and bacon in the bowl. The heat of the pasta will cook the eggs.
  • Add pepper to your taste. Mix all together.
  • Serve.
