Basil Carbonara

by in Mar 2000

Yield: Makes 4 to 6 servings.

Ingredients:

  • 10 slices bacon
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 4 to 6 cloves garlic
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 1 cup fresh grated Parmesan
  • 1 pound pasta

Instructions:

Boil water to cook pasta. Fry bacon, drain, and chop into 1/4-inch slices. Blend, process, or chop basil and garlic until finely minced. In another bowl, mix eggs and half-and-half, then add bacon, basil mixture, and grated cheese. Meanwhile, cook pasta as directed, drain, then immediately add sauce while the pasta is still hot. Cover and let sit for 2 to 3 minutes. (The hot pasta cooks the egg.) Toss and serve at once with extra Parmesan.
