Bacon + Pea Carbonara


Is there anything on this Earth that is better than bacon? I can only think of a few things that are better that straight up bacon and they usually include the use of bacon. Can you tell I live in the Midwest? For the hearty folk of Minnesota, cialis generic treatment meat, generic viagra well more specifically bacon, will always be a staple of life. One of the reasons I love living in Minnesota. We are unashamed of our love of meat. (Take that how you will) ;)

Bacon+Pea Carbonara

5 strips Un-cured Nitrate Free Bacon

1/2 cup Frozen Peas

2 cloves garlic

1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream

3 Organic Free Range Egg Yolks

1/3 box of Spaghetti ( I use Creamette)

Grated Parmesan to finish


In a large pot bring 6 quarts of water to a rolling boil. Add 1/3 box of Spaghetti and cook until “al dente.” Meanwhile, in a large saute pan over medium flame, cook bacon strips until crisp, about 6-8 minutes. Add minced garlic cloves. Cook for 1 minutes making sure garlic does not burn. Add the frozen peas and cook 2-3 minutes. Add the cream and bring to a simmer. Separate 3 egg yolks. Off the flame add the yolks 1 at a time to the pea and cream mixture, whisking constantly so the egg yolks don’t coagulate. Drain the pasta and toss in the cream sauce. Crumble the bacon on top and stir into the pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan and enjoy!

Happy Tasting!
