Spaghetti, bacon, eggs, cream, parmesan, black pepper - It doesn't come much simpler than that! Tasty, too.
Spaghetti Carbonara is a classic with many variations. My version uses very little cream, and some onions as well as pancetta bacon.
You can substitute dried pasta if you don't have access to fresh pasta. You can also use regular bacon instead of pancetta if you can't find pancetta.
Carbonara is a relatively new dish to Italian cooking, it appears on the scene around the end of WW II. In Italy, it is not done using much cream, if any at all. It also doesn't use onions, but I like that variation.
