My Ex-Girlfriend's SUPER CARBONARA
This has become the signature centerpiece dish
for every birthday party I've had since 1993.
Although my super ex-girlfriend and I parted ways
more than 8 years ago, her spectacular Carbonara
is still very much a part of my life.
The recipe is simplicity itself,
just take the time to fry up almost a kilo of BACON!!!

4 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 kg. bacon, fried to a crisp, then chopped into bits

4 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1/4 lb. butter
2 Knorr beef bouillon cubes, dissolved in 1.5 cups warm water

After cooking the noodles,
toss in some butter to prevent drying and set aside.
Saute garlic in butter.
Add the dissolved Knorr cubes, cream. egg yolks and cheese.

Simmer for 8 - 10 mins. or until thick.
Place tossed pasta into pyrex pan

Sprinkle the remaining cooked bacon bits
and cheese on top and microwave
or bake until cheese melts.
