Your taste buds will think they’ve gone to flavor heaven. Rich, creamy noodles covered in ranchy goodness tossed with fresh green peas and the mother of all deliciousness – BACON! This easy carbonara recipe is your new go-to favorite.
12 ounces dry spaghetti
2 large eggs and 2 yolks, room temperature
Coarsely ground black pepper, to taste
2⁄3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 ounces diced bacon
10 ounces (1 pkg) frozen peas (optional)
Step 1Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook until al dente.
While the pasta is cooking, do the following:
Step 2Whisk the eggs, yolks, Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning & Salad Dressing Mix Shaker, a small pinch of black pepper and cheese together in a mixing bowl. Set aside.
Step 3Heat oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Add the pancetta or bacon, and sauté for about about 5-7 minutes until beginning to crisp.
Step 4Just before the pasta has finished cooking, add the peas to the pasta and cook for 1 minute (optional). Drain pasta with peas, reserving 1 cup of the pasta water. Add pasta to the bacon skillet over low heat. Stir to coat the pasta. Transfer pasta and bacon to a bowl, add the egg mixture and a small amount of the reserved pasta water for creaminess. Toss well to coat. Serve immediately with extra cheese for garnish.
