Mama Steph shares a quick dinner for any night you want to get dinner on the table in a hurry and have something delicious your family will enjoy.
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.
