Pantry Meal: Eggs and Bacon Pasta (aka Carbonara)

Yep, another pantry meal. When you're either too lazy or too poor to go grocery shopping, getting creative (or back to basics) with what's in the fridge and pantry can yield quick and yummy results.

Sautee the bacon in a little olive oil and add garlic.

Beat together two eggs and add grated parmesan. Meanwhile, boil the pasta (along with, if desired, broccoli or whatever green cruciferous veg you want to get rid of).

Drain pasta (and veg), reserving a little bit of cooking liquid, to the bacon and garlic. Toss. Then add the egg mixture to the pan (make sure it's off the heat).

We added a little bit of truffle salt to turn up the earthiness.

We had it with this Burgundy that Tim gave us at one of our dinner parties in March.

Buon Appetito!
