Simple and Affordable Carbonara

Submitted by: BUN3KIN


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 - 14.5 oz box Ronzoni Smart Taste penne
    6 slices Canadian Bacon, diced
    1 tsp. Olive Oil
    2 cloves Garlic, minced
    3 eggs
    1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    1/4 cup skim milk
    1/2 cup flat leaf parsley, shredded

Directions

In a pan with fairly steep sides, heat up olive oil, garlic and minced Canadian bacon pieces.

In a separate pan, cook pasta according to package directions.

In the meantime, crack the three eggs into a bowl and whisk briskly with a fork. Add in the one cup of grated Parmesan and continue to mix thoroughly, adding the skim milk as you go. Set the mixture aside.

When the pasta is finished, drain and transfer to the Canadian bacon, oil and garlic pan immediately. Start stirring with your pasta server and dump in the beaten egg / cheese / milk mixture. Then grab a spoon for your other hand and start tossing the mixture to coat the pasta and cook the eggs from the heat of the noodles.

Serve on a plate and top with chopped herbs and a few shaved curls of a higher end cheese to sex it up if you so choose.
