Have you ever had a carbonara before? It is so lovely – if you did not know there is egg in the mix – but it like coats the pasta and cooks a little – it is very good

I have no idea who came up with such an idea – but it is pretty brilliant – I love adding the bacon to the mix as well

I used Turkey Bacon to cut some of the calories and fat in the dish

This recipe is pretty inexpensive to make – one item no pictured is the olive oil I used – I like using a little olive oil in the egg mixture to help the egg mixture adhere to the pasta

This recipe is VERY easy to make – about 15 minutes of real cooking time – there is about 10 minutes for the pasta to cook as well

You should reserve about 1/2 cup of pasta water – pasta water is the water that the pasta cooked in – it usually looks a little white – that is the starch – you will be using the pasta water if the pasta becomes too sticky
