Carbonara at its best! Easy, elegant and scrumptious!
Bring a large pot of water to boil.
Place the eggs (in the shell) into a bowl with some warm water to bring the eggs up to room temperature.
Cube the bacon. Add the bacon into a large skillet and cook over medium heat until crispy. Remove bacon from the skillet and drain on a paper towel lined plate.
Add a tablespoon of sea salt to the boiling water and add in the dried pasta. Cook according to package directions (about 9-10 minutes).
Meanwhile crack the eggs into a large (deep) serving bowl and whisk. Add grated cheeses and plenty of fresh ground black pepper, stir.
Once pasta is cooked, drain off the water (reserve 1 cup of pasta water in case you need to revive the sauce) and add drained pasta to the bowl with the egg and cheese mixture. Toss thoroughly to cook the egg and melt the cheese. Add a bit of the reserved pasta water if you need to in order to loosen it up just a tad.
Add in the bacon and toss some more. Serve and top with more black pepper, a sprinkle of grated Parmesan and some fresh torn parsley leaves.
I can honestly say this fresh pasta recipe works every time. It rolls out beautifully, tastes great, doesn’t blow up in the water, doesn’t break when you make ravioli and the dough can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator!
I make pasta a lot, mostly ravioli. I make a bunch and freeze them and it makes getting dinner on the table so easy! Feel free to substitute spinach, basil, chard or kale … but ramps are in season!
Quinoa, Black Bean and Chicken Stuffed Poblano Peppers
You can use either chicken or pork in this recipe. It’s so good my hubby always has to go back for more. The kids eat it up too!
