A recipe for the person who "can't cook" or who has never cooked before!

This meal takes about 10 minutes and tatses like you ordered it straight off of a menu! Give it a shot!


Whole wheat pasta of your choice
3/4 cup milk (soy, almond, cows, you pick! we use almond milk)
2 whole Eggs (try Organic/Cage free/Grain Fed!)
1/2 cup-2 cups freshly shredded/grated Parmesan (depends how cheesy you like it!)
2 tablespoons butter
8 slices bacon (we use turkey bacon)

Optional Seasonings/Additions
-Garlic Salt
-Creole Seasoning
-Red Pepper flakes
-Fresh Basil/Oregano
-Italian Herb grinder
-Cooked Spinach
-Bok Choy
-Chopped Garlic

  1. Cook the spaghetti according to the package directions.
  2. Cook bacon in skillet (I think the crunchier the better, once cooked, drain grease and cut up or crumble)
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs and yolks, parmesan cheese, and half of seasonings.
  4. When the pasta is done, drain it and quickly put it directly into the bowl with the egg mixture.  Toss to coat.  The hot pasta will cook the eggs.
  5. When the pasta is coated with the egg mixture, mix in the butter, bacon, and second half of seasonings.  Serve immediately.
*For Creamier Carbonara; add heavy cream, half and half, or more milk!*
