Pasta Carbonora

08 January 2020

Let's talk real quick about this amazing dish of pasta above. For the millionth time, I'm not a photographer and this was 10000x better than the picture looks. The egg on top set it over the TOP and this one has us going back for more every single time. 
Something I've forgotten both times we've made this is the arugula. So if you don't like it, trust me, you still can have an amazing dish by leaving it out. And I'm sure it excellent with the arugula, too!

This dish is super simple to put together and packed with flavor. Brian gives it's a 10! It comes from Skinny Taste but I'm not that sure of it's skinnyness... :) 

Spaghetti Carbonora
10 ounces dried spaghetti, or gluten-free spaghetti
6 slices center cut bacon, cut into 1/2-inch dices
3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 cups baby arugula or frisée lettuce , chopped
3 tbsp Italian parsley, chopped
kosher salt and ground black pepper
1/4 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
3 tablespoons grated Pecorino Romano
4 extra large eggs

Poaching liquid:
4 cups cold water
6 tbsp white vinegar
1/4 tsp kosher salt

Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil.

In a deep skillet or medium pot, egg-poaching liquid to a boil over high heat, then leave on low heat.

Heat a large (12-inch) skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon until fat renders and meat is slightly crisp, about 10 minutes. Set aside with a slotted spoon and transfer to a plate, leaving the fat in the skillet.

At the same time, add the pasta to the salted water, and add the broth to the bacon fat and simmer the broth to reduce by 1/3, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Cook the pasta until al dente, under-cooking by 2 minutes, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain pasta but do not rinse.

To the broth add the arugula, parsley and 1/4 teaspoon salt and black pepper.

Add drained pasta, raise heat to high, and toss to coat with sauce.

Finish cooking the pasta in the broth for 2 minutes, then remove from heat, stir in cheese, and toss. The spaghetti will soak up any liquid.

Working one at a time, carefully crack each egg into a small bowl and very gently slide into barely boiling poaching liquid. Cook until whites set but yolks are still runny, about 2 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, lift each egg out of the water.

Evenly divide pasta between 4 warm bowls. Place each egg atop each bowl of pasta. Top generously with black pepper.

Serve immediately, mixing up the pasta to spread the egg and yolk throughout the bowl.
