       Title: Pasta Carbonara Krbs41a
  Categories: Pasta
       Yield: 4 Servings
 
     1/4 lb Bacon, chopped
            Garlic clove, finely minced
       3 x  Eggs, lightly beaten
       1 c  Parmesan
            Milk or heavy cream
     1/2 lb Pasta
 
   Put water on to boil pasta.  In another large pot, cook the bacon
   until browned.  Add garlic, stir once, remove from heat. Cook pasta,
   meanwhile, beat eggs, cheese and milk or cream. The consistency
   should be like wallpaper paste.  You may need to add more milk or
   cheese since some cheese will absorb more liquid. Put bacon pan back
   on the heat, drain pasta and add to pan. Toss well. Pour egg, cheese
   mixture over pasta, bacon mixture. Toss.  The heat of the bacon and
   pasta will cook the egg mixture into a creamy sauce.  Add lots of
   fresh ground pepper. Suggestions: Add slivers of proscuitto or plain
   deli ham, and/or saute thinly sliced mushrooms with the bacon.
