  • 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


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Serve with extra fresh parmesan on top and salt and pepper to taste.
