Tom Cruise's Carbonara

Preparation Time:
0.75 hours


  • 1/2 inch of olive oil (for frying pan)
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 8 to 12 thick slices of Italian bacon
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 packages of spaghetti
  • 2 cups of grated parmesan cheese
Cooking Instructions
In a frying pan, combine 1/2 inch of olive oil, 2 cloves of minced garlic, one chopped onion and the Italian bacon cut into small squares. Let simmer for about a half-hour, being careful not to let the oil get to a boiling point.

In a bowl, beat 4 eggs with lots of salt and fresh ground pepper.

Bring a pan of salted water to a boil. Cook both packages of spaghetti until al dente, drain and immediately add egg mixture to pasta. The eggs are actually cooked by the pasta. (Make sure the eggs are thoroughly cooked before proceeding.) Stir the egg mixture until it is well mixed. Pour in the mixture from the frying pan and stir. Finish with the parmesan cheese and serve!
