Spaghetti Carbonara

Pancetta (I used half)
Parmesan cheese (about half a cup)
2 eggs
Spaghetti (I used half of the pack - about 250g)
Salt and pepper

Add the spaghetti to a large pot of salted boiling water and cook.

Add some vegetable oil to a pan and fry the chopped pancetta.

Fry the pancetta till it's browned on all sides.

Break the eggs into a bowl, add the cheese and then season with salt and pepper. Whisk well.

Drain the pasta and add to the fried pancetta.

Turn off the heat and add the egg mixture, stirring constantly.

Serve right away ;)

NB: This dish is traditionally made with pancetta but if you can't find pancetta, you can use bacon and if you don't eat pork then it's okay to use turkey bacon. Make sure the heat is off before adding the egg mixture so you don't end up with scrambled eggs. The heat from the pasta should cook the eggs just right.
