Spaghetti alla Carbonara
1/4 package bacon, cut up in small pieces. (You're supposed to use pancetta, but it's ridiculously expensive around here)
60ml white wine
60ml heavy cream
few tbsp parmesan
Mix eggs, cream, parmesan & pepper. Set aside.
Put a tbsp oil in frying pan & add bacon, cook until crispy. Add wine and reduce until it gets syrupy.
Meanwhile, cook pasta in very salty water. & drain. As soon as you drain pasta add bacon and all syrupy wine, stir. Add egg cream mixture, little at a time, stirring as you go. The eggs will cook on contact of the hot pasta, but not make it like "cooked eggs", it stays saucy. I didn't have to use all the mixture, because I didn't make that much pasta. You can add as much as you like.
