Spaghetti Alla Carbonara

Spaghetti Carbonara Pasta - no worries with Safest Choice pasteurized eggs! #recipe by bunsinmyoven.com

You know, when you decide to start writing a food blog, you don’t realize how humiliating it will be.

I mean, I was fairly certain I’d say things like, “Look! I made some brownies. You should too!” I did not think I would share my deepest secrets with you, such as the fact that I’ve never eaten oatmeal before or that I once drank salad dressing from a baggie. And that’s just the embarrassing food stories! Let’s not forget when I told you about that time in grade school when my pants were pulled right off of my butt at the skating rink.

And, now here I am, sharing with you that I have this weird fear of eggs. I mean, you guys, they are creepy.

So, imagine my surprise when I got an email from Safest Choice Eggs asking me to be a member of the Darling Dozen. I laughed my head off. Then I went on to research Safest Choice Eggs and realized that actually, we were a match made in heaven. Their eggs aren’t creepy! They’re pasteurized! I will not be dying of salmonella today, no sir.

I bought a dozen eggs and I did what I have longed to do for years, but was always too scared to try: I made Spaghetti Alla Carbonara.

Now, yes, I know, the heat from the spaghetti is supposed to cook the eggs. The thing is, maybe my pasta isn’t hot enough to cook the egg. Or maybe you’re just a liar who wants me to get salmonella? I don’t know. I don’t really care anymore, because I don’t have to worry about it with Safest Choice.

Check out the video on Safest Choice’s website to see Chef Giuliano Hazan walk you through how to make this simple recipe! It’s quick, easy, and so creamy! I changed things up a bit and am including my recipe below.
