INGREDIENTS

Servings: 12

Ingredients

  • 1 pound (16 ounces) spaghetti
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley

INSTRUCTIONS

  • 1 Cook spaghetti as directed on package for al dente pasta. Drain well, reserving 1/3 cup of cooking water; keep warm.

    Test Kitchen Tip: Keep pasta and reserved cooking water as warm as possible. This will help to temper the eggs, and make a smooth, creamy sauce.
  • 2 Meanwhile, mix eggs, cheese, garlic powder and salt in medium bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Set aside.
  • 3 Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add bacon; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until bacon is crispy. Add spaghetti and toss to mix well.
  • 4 Remove skillet from heat and whisk in egg mixture; stirring constantly until eggs thicken. Gradually stir in reserved warm cooking water. Garnish with parsley and additional Parmesan cheese, if desired.
