How to cook linguine carbonara
Cook the Pasta
Put 1.5L of water in a large pot. When it's boiling put 500g of Linguine inside.
Let the pasta cook for 10-15mn depending of how you prefer them (al-dente or soft).
Prepare the bacon
During this time cook the diced bacon in a big pan. No need to add butter or olive oil as it is already fat.
You can cook them with a chopped onion for more taste.
Prepare the sauce
Mix 2 egg and whipped cream in a big bowl with salt and pepper.
If you want you can add chopped garlic when the diced bacons are almost cooked.
Take out the diced bacons of the pan before they get crispy. Put them aside.
When the linguine are ready, drain the water.
Then put the linguine in the bowl with the mixture of egg and whipped cream and mix them all together. ( or you can also pour the mixture on the linguine if you prefer).
As the pasta are still very hot it will cook the sauce just enough to give a lovely texture.
Quickly add the diced bacon with the chopped onion and keep mixing.
You can add cheese and olive oil during the process.
