Godfrey's Cambridge's Spaghetti Alla Carbonara (Di

Lynnda Cloutier


Got this one from an old cookbook in the 1970's.

pinch tips: How to Mince Garlic




1 lb. spaghetti or spaghettini
1/4 lb. butter
1/4 cup heavy cream
crushed black pepper
dash oregano
15 slices bacon, fried, crisp and crumbled
3 egg yolks, beaten slightly with whisk
parsley, chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

Cook spaghetti according to directions on package until just done, al dente.
Melt butter, add cream, pepper, oregano and bacon. Simmer, stirring 5 minutes. Drain spaghetti through large colander.
Transfer it to heated serving bowl and stir in beaten raw egg yolks, which will cook on contact with the hot pasta. Stir in cream/butter sauce and mix thoroughly. Garnish with parsley.
Serves 6
