Spaghetti Carbonara

Pretty cool huh!!
Amy’s kids were over and someone claimed the car! He even figured out that the car doors open and said, “It works!!”
First thing first, start cooking up some chicken and toss in your garlic.
While your chicken is cooking separate the eggs.

Add the whipping cream to the egg yolks.
Whisk in your basil and parsley, I was in a hurry and didn’t have any fresh so I used the dried variety.
Add in a can of Red Gold Italian Style tomatoes to the chicken.
This is where I started to get really hungry… It smelled so good!
Add the cheese to your sauce.

And some bacon.

Cook up some spaghetti. I used about half of a regular size box.

Reduce the heat on the chicken and tomatoes and add the cream sauce. Be careful not to boil.

Mix and let sit for 4 minutes.

It should thicken up a little bit.

Toss in your pasta and add salt and pepper to taste.

And enjoy!

1 can (14.5 oz.) Italian Style diced tomatoes
