#97 The Case of Spaghetti Low Carbonara Footprint and What it's Like to be the Sidekick in an Amateur Sleuthing Duo

Spaghetti Low Carbonara Footprint

enough whole-wheat spaghetti for two people (I have a bright yellow spaghetti measure, do you?)
enough regular spaghetti for two
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 eggs
1/2 cup Parmesan, grated
1/2 cup simulated bacon chips
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Cook the spaghetti (add the whole-wheat spaghetti to the pot first, bring back to a boil and cook for 1 min. before adding the regular spaghetti).

Whisk together the eggs, Parmesan, salt and pepper to taste.

Just before the pasta is al dente, sauté the garlic and rosemary in the olive oil.

Drain the pasta (saving 1/4 cup pasta water) and toss it in the fragrant oil.

Whisk the reserved pasta water into the egg mixture.

Toss with the spaghetti until the sauce thickens.

Mix in the simulated bacon chips.

Plate and sprinkle with the parsley.

Serves 4.
