Spaghetti Transylvania recipe

 For this recipe we need:

200 g belly strips
300 ml beef soup or chicken
200 ml cooking cream
100 g Parmesan | laugh
80 g of spaghetti
60 g of bacon
1 egg
salt pepper

For decoration: chopped parsley, grated parmesan.

First, put the pasta to boil in boiling salted water.

While the pasta is boiling - put diced bacon in a pan, after a few minutes add the belly strips, wait for them to penetrate well, and then add the beef (or chicken) soup. We leave everything on low heat until the amount of soup is reduced.

In the meantime, prepare the sauce (as with pasta carbonara) from an egg, cooking cream and parmesan cheese, season with salt and pepper.

We add the sauce to the pan over the belly strips, if we want the sauce to be a little more consistent, we can add a little more Parmesan cheese and leave it for a few more minutes.

When the spaghetti is ready, put it over the prepared sauce, homogenize - then serve - not before sprinkling Parmesan and chopped parsley.

Good appetite!
