Similar to spaghetti Carbonara, Pork Jowl Bacon Spaghetti is an easy but satisfying dish, topped with an egg for extra protein. Perfect for an evening meal.
Pasta Carbonara is a delightful dinner that shares a balance of ease and taste. This allows it to be cooked over fire or a gas stove.
For times when it is harder to carry bacon it can be exchanged for other meat options like jerky, sausage and even Spam.
This dish goes well with a simple garlic bread that can easily be cooked in a camp environment.

1/3 cup Chardonnay white wine
200ml thickened cream
40g Parmesan cheese, grated
salt and pepper, to taste

Finely dice the bacon the cook in the skillet over an medium heat with the butter.
In a cup whisk the 2 eggs and cream until smooth and well combined.
Add the wine to the bacon and simmer allowing most of the wine to evaporate off.
Take the skillet off the heat then add the cooked pasta, grated Parmesan, and egg/cream mixture. Stir consistently until well combined and the sauces has slightly thickened.
Note: If the mixture resembles scrambled eggs, the skillet and its contents were too hot. Next time adjust the temperature accordingly.
