Simple Spaghetti Carbonara

16 oz dried spaghetti (fettuccine or linguine would work well, too)

4 large eggs

8 oz. bacon, preferably thick-sliced, or 8 oz. ground Italian sausage

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup grated Romano cheese


Place four whole eggs (still in shell)  in bowl of warm water to bring to room temperature.

Boil water in a large stockpot; cook spaghetti according to package directions.

While water is boiling, chop the bacon and saute over low-medium heat.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the four eggs, and add the cheeses, stirring in.

Reserve 1 cup pasta water, then drain pasta. Add the hot pasta to the egg mixture;  stir to coat every strand with the cheese mixture.  The egg will cook from the heat of the pasta; add the chopped bacon, stirring in. If the pasta seems too dry, add the reserved pasta water. Stir it in, and serve immediately while hot.
