  • 8 ingredients


12 Servings

  • 1 pound (16 ounces) spaghetti
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 8 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley


  1. Cook spaghetti as directed on package for al dente pasta. Drain well, reserving 1/3 cup of cooking water; keep warm.
    Test Kitchen Tip: Keep pasta and reserved cooking water as warm as possible. This will help to temper the eggs, and make a smooth, creamy sauce.
  2. Meanwhile, mix eggs, cheese, garlic powder and salt in medium bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Set aside.
  3. Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add bacon; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until bacon is crispy. Add spaghetti and toss to mix well.
  4. Remove skillet from heat and whisk in egg mixture; stirring constantly until eggs thicken. Gradually stir in reserved warm cooking water. Garnish with parsley and additional Parmesan cheese, if desired.
