How to Make Pasta Carbonara


  1. fry bacon until crispy,I cut mine up first then fry it, After bacon is fried put in a bowl on a paper towel and drain, use the leftover bacon grease to fry the onions and the garlic, boil the pasta and keep one cup of the pasta water set aside hot pasta, defrost the frozen peas I usually put them in a strainer and run hot water thru them so they keep their green color
  2. in a separate bowl add the three eggs ,parmesan cheese , and heavy cream mix together until smooth add pepper and salt to taste, add the hot pasta, peas onions garlic and bacon toss all together add some of the pasta water if liquid is to thick. top with the grated parmesan cheese
