Heaven in a bowl!
16 oz spaghetti
2 large eggs
14-16 cloves of garlic peeled **
6-8 Tbsp butter
2/3 cup Parmesan cheese
2 tsp dried basil (or a handful or so of fresh basil)
salt & pepper
Bacon bits (optional ... fabulous but... it is still good without)
Cook the pasta to your liking.
Warm the bowl for the pasta (I use a big glass bowl).
Combine eggs, garlic, butter, Parmesan cheese, basil, salt, and pepper in a food processor. Buzz and scrape down the sized until you have a thick paste.
Drain the pasta. Put it right into the heated bowl and glob the garlic paste right on top and stir in quickly. Toss and enjoy! You can top it with a bit more cheese if you want.
** I found that I like the garlic roasted just a little.... the raw garlic is a bit hot and sometimes... I am in the mood for that ... but... sometimes... I like the more mellow taste of roasted garlic.
