It's been a carbonara kind of week. You know that week: when you're baking like a fiend and doing holiday cards and running everywhere shopping and have a million engagements? And tired of inhaling fast food or scrounged up leftovers while standing over the sink? A week like that calls for a nice carbonara - warm, easy, homey, and comes together in the time it takes to boil a pot of pasta.
1/4 to 1/2 lb. thickly sliced bacon
2 cloves garlic, peeled
2 large eggs
1/2 c. grated Parmigiano cheese, plus extra for the table
