Pasta Carbonara

Whenever there is a plethora of eggs in the refrigerator and we have had heavy meat dinners for multiple days in a row, I try to work in a dinner that will use up some of our excess surplus and Pasta Carbonara is one of those dinners.

Here are the ingredients needed to make this recipe:
  • 6 large eggs (or 8 medium ones)
  • 2/3 cup whipping cream
  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 pound bacon, fried and chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds of egg noodles
  • 1 1/2 cups mozzarella cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
In a mixing bowl, mix together the eggs and the whipping cream.

Separately, cook the noodles according to the package directions.

After draining the noodles, melt the butter in the same pot.

Then add the drained noodles back into the pot and coat the noodles with the butter.  Set to the side.

Next, put an oven proof dish in the oven at 325 degree Fahrenheit.  When the dish is heated, put the buttered noodles in the dish and pour the egg and cream mixture over the top of the noodles.  Mix well.

Next add the bacon, cheese, salt and pepper and stir again.

Put the whole mixture back into the oven for 5 to 10 minutes to warm it completely.

Stir one more time and then serve.
