Every family has that meal that reminds them of childhood. In our family my Dad traveled a lot for work, so when he was home it was a special treat, especially when he cooked. My Dad had a few recipes that he did over and over again, but by far our favorite was his spaghetti carbonara. Unlike the carbonara you can get in restaurants that has a heavy cream sauce and peas, this carbonara is lighter and very simple to make. The trick to making this carbonara just right is dump the hot pasta water, immediately put the spaghetti back in the pot, add the eggs and toss very quickly so that the egg coats the strands of pasta and does not turn into scrambled eggs. This meal is delicious with a fresh salad and garlic bread. You will be in bacon heaven!!
