Cooking in Den Haag: Spaghetti Carbonara

Friend/neighbour, Annabelle, French, taught me this :) Easiest way to make carbonara! :D

What you need:

1 packet Spaghetti
Bacon bits (with fat)
1 onion, roughly cut
Cream (or creme fraiche if you're feeling indulgent)
3 egg yolks (seperate the whites)

In a pan, without any oil, throw in the onion and bacon bits. The fat of the bacon will melt off and the onions will cook in it. Meanwhile, boil the spaghetti in a different pan according to packet instructions or until al dente.

Separate the egg yolks from the whites. In the pan, add the cream to the onion and bacon, and then when it is warm, add the slightly beaten egg yolks. Stir everything together, lower the heat, keep warm.

Add the spaghetti when done, toss it around in the sauce, and feed to hungry grateful people. :D

Picture is not so great, but the food really is. :)
