Total time: 
Serves: 3-4 servings
What You'll Need
  • ½ a package of extra thick spaghetti noodles
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 3-4 pieces prosciutto, cubed (I used a salted parmesan variety)
  • ½ cup parmesan (grated)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs parsley
  • salt and pepper
  1. In a large pot, bring water to a boil (should be enough water to almost cover your pasta when completely dry)
  2. Add about 1 tbs. of salt to the water.
  3. Once boiling, add in the pasta and cook according to package instructions.
  4. In the meantime, add the cubed prosciutto to a medium-sized pan and begin to render the meat over a medium-low temp.
  5. Add in the olive oil and garlic and cook for about 1 minute, or until the garlic becomes fragrant.
  6. Once the pasta is done, reserve about ½ cup of the cooking liquid then drain the pasta and set aside.
  7. In a small bowl, combine the eggs and parmesan and mix together until combined. Set aside.
  8. Add the noodles to the pot with the prosciutto and garlic and turn the temp down to low.
  9. With a wooden spoon, slowly add-in the egg mixture while continuously stirring (do this for about 3 minutes) and once the mixture has thickened, remove from the stovetop.
  10. Top with fresh parsley and grated parmesan and serve!
