Some good crusty bread and a salad makes for a superb dinner!
1/2 lb Spaghetti cooked according the the package directions, drained and set aside reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water.
4 Strips of bacon chopped and cooked to your liking, reserving 1 tablespoon of the bacon grease.
4 cloves of garlic, finely minced
1/2 cup frozen peas.
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 large egg, beaten
Basil sprig for garnish
In the skillet that you browned the bacon, add the 1 tbs bacon grease and the garlic, cook for 30 seconds then add the pasta, peas, pasta water and salt & pepper to taste, cook for 2 more minutes then add the beaten egg, this gives it a really nice creaminess, cook another minute, transfer to a platter and sprinkle with the parmesan and top with the fresh sprig of basil. Enjoy!!
