Parmesan Cheese on Spaghetti Carbo

Spaghetti Carbo (Spaghetti Carbonara) is a classic dish that combines bacon with noodles, an egg mixture and a delicious wine sauce. The Parmesan cheese is an important ingredient. It is because of the flavor that it adds. Enjoy!

1 kilo spaghetti
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 slices bacon (diced)
1/4 ground pork
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion (chopped)
1 garlic clove (minced)
¼ cup white wine
4 eggs
½ cup grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper (to taste)
2 tablespoons fresh parsley (chopped)
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

Cooking Instructions:

Step 1: In a small bowl combine eggs, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside. Cook noodles according to package directions.

Step 2: While noodles are coking. In a medium skillet over medium heat cook bacon until slightly crispy. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels. Leave about 2 tablespoons of bacon fat in the pan and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add garlic , chopped onion and ground pork, and cook until the onion is tender. Add wine and cook for another minute.

Step 3: Drain noodles when they are finished cooking and put into a large serving dish. While the noodles are still very hot toss them with the parmesan/egg mixture. Then add the ground pork , onion and wine mixture and toss well to coat. Then add bacon and toss again. Top with parsley and additional parmesan cheese for serving.
