Truly Irish Rasher Carbonara

  1. Prepare the Pasta:

   – Cook the spaghetti in a large pot of boiling salted water according to the package instructions until al dente. Reserve about 1 cup of pasta cooking water before draining.


  1. Cook the Truly Irish Rashers:

   – While the pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the diced Truly Irish Traditional Rashers and cook until they are crispy and golden brown. Once cooked, remove from heat and set aside.


  1. Prepare the Carbonara Sauce:

   – In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and grated Parmesan cheese until well combined. Season with salt and black pepper according to your taste. Set aside.


  1. Sauté Garlic:

   – In the same pan used for cooking the rashers, add minced garlic and sauté over medium heat for about 1-2 minutes until it becomes fragrant. Be careful not to brown the garlic.


  1. Combine Pasta, Rashers, and Sauce:

   – Add the drained spaghetti to the pan with the sautéed garlic. Toss the pasta to coat it in the garlic-infused oil.

   – Pour the egg and Parmesan mixture over the pasta, stirring quickly to combine. The heat from the pasta will help create a creamy sauce.


  1. Add Rashers and Adjust Consistency:

   – Gently fold in the cooked Truly Irish Traditional Rashers, ensuring they are evenly distributed throughout the pasta.

   – If the sauce seems too thick, gradually add the reserved pasta cooking water a little at a time until you achieve the desired creamy consistency.


  1. Serve and Garnish:

   – Transfer the Carbonara to serving plates or a large bowl. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and an extra sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.

   – Serve immediately, ensuring each plate gets a generous portion of Truly Irish goodness!
