  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 2 cups cut-up cooked chicken
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup whipping (heavy) cream

    Cook and drain spaghetti as directed on package.
  • 2
    While spaghetti is cooking, cook bacon in 3-quart saucepan over low heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp. Remove bacon from saucepan with slotted spoon; drain. Drain fat from saucepan, reserving 1 tablespoon in saucepan.

    Cook onion and garlic in bacon fat over medium heat about 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion is tender. Stir in spaghetti, chicken, cheese and whipping cream. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through. Toss with bacon.

  • Carbonara is an Italian dish of spaghetti with a sauce of cream, eggs, Parmesan cheese and bits of bacon.
  • For an authentic Italian preparation, use pancetta instead of bacon. Pancetta, a cured meat, is imported from Italy and is similar to bacon.
  • Garnish with flat-leaf parsley.
