Okay - here is Pasta Carbonara!! - you can't go wrong with Pasta AND Bacon!

This recipe is from Ree Drummond's Pioneer Woman - with a few minor changes

12 ounces of spagetti
8 slices of diced bacon
1/2 onion diced
2 cloves of garlic minced
3 eggs
3/4 cup of grated parmesan (there's nothing like the real stuff ladies!)
3/4 cup of heavy cream ( I use 10%)
salt and pepper
1/2 cup peas

Cook pasta according to instructions

While pasta is cooking, fry the bacon until just barely crisp...drain on paper towels....use bacon grease to cook the onions and garlic - set aside.

In a bow, mix together eggs, parmesan, cream, salt and pepper until smooth.

When Pasta is done, drain - reserving a cup or two of pasta water

Place pasta in a bowl and slowly drizzle in half of the egg mixture - stirring constantly the whole time . The sauce will become quite thick - splash in a little of the reserved hot water if needed.

Add peas, bacon, and sauteed onion and garlic. Finish adding the sauce, stirring until combined.

Serve immediately with extra Parmesan.

Hope you like it - now that I have typed this up, my mouth is drooling -- we are having this for supper tonight!
