I made this dish because my mom can't have butter, but she loves pasta carbonara! Hope you enjoy!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring water and olive oil to a boil in a stockpot over high heat. Break pasta in half and add to water. Cook until pasta is al dente, 7 to 10 minutes.

  • Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until fat is rendered, 5 to 7 minutes; do not drain fat. Add mushrooms and scallions; toss to combine.

  • Strain pasta; add to bacon mixture. Increase heat to high; toss until pasta is well-coated. Crack eggs into skillet; toss until eggs are cooked through, about 3 minutes. Add Mizithra cheese, mozzarella cheese, and salt; toss just until combined.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute angel hair pasta for the spaghetti, if desired.

One egg may be used instead of 2 for a lighter texture.

Cream may be added to the bacon, mushrooms, and chives just before the pasta is added for a richer texture.
