Ingredients

  • 8 ounce – spaghetti pasta, whole-wheat, dry
  • 1 tablespoon – olive oil
  • 4 slice – turkey bacon
  • 5 clove – garlic
  • 1 cup – green peas, frozen
  • 4 large – egg
  • 1/2 cup – Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoon – water

Directions

  1. Boil noodles according to package directions. **Reserve 2 tablespoons of noodle water to use later.** Drain noodles and toss with a drizzle of olive oil to keep them from sticking together.
  2. Meanwhile, chop bacon into small strips and then saute in a large skillet over medium-high heat. After cooked to your liking, add minced garlic and peas. Keep on the heat for a few minutes, until peas have partially thawed.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, parmesan, and 2 tablespoons of reserved noodle water. Add noodles and egg-parmesan mixture to the skillet and toss to coat. Make sure noodles are evenly coated and keep on the heat for 5 minutes, stirring regularly, to ensure egg mixture is cooked.
  4. Serve with extra fresh parmesan on top and salt and pepper to taste.
Makes 4 servings.

Made this for tonight’s dinner. I feel the 4 eggs was too much as it looked and tasted overly scrambled. Next time I would use less egg. Otherwise, tasty!

My 2 1/2 year old and my husband both loved it. We used uncured pork bacon, whole wheat angel hair (slightly more than called for) and found that the egg to pasta ratio was fine that way. Will be in our regular rotation!
