Pasta Carbonara

Be prepared to be amazed. This is the best, easiest, tastiest meal I’ve made in recent history. Many thanks to Eat, Live, Run for posting the recipe.

You’ll need angel hair pasta, an egg, EVOO, 1 clove of garlic, and 1 Tbs real bacon bits (because I didn’t have bacon. If I did, I would have followed the recipe and cooked one strip of bacon, diced it, and cooked the garlic in the bacon grease. Check out the recipe).

Alrighty, boil 1 serving of dry pasta. While that’s happening, cook the minced garlic and bacon bits in the olive oil. Drain the water, and return the pasta to it’s pan over low heat. Mix in the oil/garlic/bacon.

Now, crack the egg into the noodles, and start mixing. Because of the heat of the noodles, the egg cooks. I promise. You aren’t eating raw egg. Keep mixing for about 2 minutes. If you don’t, your egg will scramble, and that will be gross.

What you are eating will taste like a wonderful, creamy pasta–minus the cream part.

Top with parsley and Parmesan. Enjoy. Because this is winter, and winter is for enjoying. And for eating pasta.
