This authentic Italian meal came from my Italian friend, Raffa. I still can’t make it like she does, but if you’re a bacon fan, you’ll love this dish.

Carbonara Recipe

1/2 to 1 lb. bacon
1 pkg. fettuccine noodles
5 eggs
3/4 C. fresh Parmesan cheese
3 T. milk
1/2 to 1tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

Boil water to cook noodles according to package. Cut bacon into 1″ to 2″ pieces and cook in skillet until not quite crispy. In separate bowl, beat eggs and then add milk, salt, pepper and half of Parmesan cheese. Set aside.

When noodles are done cooking, drain and return to large saucepan. Turn on low heat and pour egg mixture over noodles. Cook over low heat until eggs start to set, stirring continuously to coat noodles with egg mixture.

Add bacon (and grease, if you’re brave) to noodles and stir.

Add rest of Parmesan cheese before serving.
