Spaghetti with egg and bacon.

The name carbonara comes from the Italian «carbone», meaning coal or charcoal, and some believe it was thought up by those who extracted coal from the mines in the Latium region (near Rome).

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.


  1. To save time, the sauce preparation and the pasta cooking can be done at the same time: Start cooking the pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, chop the bacon, put it in a nonstick pan, and fry until the bacon is crisp. Set the bacon aside on a paper towel to absorb the excess fat.
  3. Stir the egg(s) in a serving bowl, add salt and pepper, then beat 1 min with a fork. Set the bowl aside in the oven at a minimum temperature in order to keep it warm.
  4. Pour the drained spaghetti into the serving bowl. Mix rapidly in order to cook the egg(s) and coat the spaghetti at the same time. Add the fried bacon and the margarine.
  5. Adjust the seasoning before serving in the warmed dishes.
