Feed 4 for $20 Pasta Carbonara

Serves 4

Time: 30 minutes

Difficulty: Intermediate

Ingredients

  • 1 pound bacon, chopped
  • 5oz parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 8 oz half and half
  • ¼ cup parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • Freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
  • Vegetable oil, for the griddle

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water up to boil. Add 2 tablespoons of kosher salt, mix until completely dissolved. Add spaghetti and boil for 8-10 minutes or until al dente. Scoop out 1 cup of starchy pasta water, then strain pasta and set aside in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Preheat Blackstone griddle to medium heat. Add the chopped bacon and use spatulas to spread it around and separate the pieces. Cook until most of the fat is rendered and the bacon bits are crispy. When the bacon is finished cooking, add it to the bowl with the cooked pasta.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, combine eggs, egg yolks, half and half, black pepper, and 4 ounces of grated parmesan. Whisk together then slowly pour the 1 cup of pasta water into the mixture while continuously whisking. This will create the carbonara sauce.
  4. Lower the temperature on the Blackstone to medium-low heat. Add the pasta and bacon directly to the griddle top. Use spatulas to spread the pasta across the griddle. Pour the carbonara sauce over the pasta then stir quickly with spatulas for 1 minute. The sauce should fully coat the pasta.
  5. Remove the pasta from the griddle and set onto a serving platter. Top with chopped parsley, black pepper, and the remaining grated parmesan.
