Creamy Pasta with Crispy Salami

Source: Everyday Food, March 2012


  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan
  • 4 ounces salami
  • Olive oil
  • 3 crushed garlic cloves
  • 3/4 pound spaghetti
  • Salt and pepper
  • Chopped parsley


  1. Whisk together eggs and Parmesan in a large bowl. Cut salami into 1/2-inch strips. Heat a skillet over medium-high, then coat with olive oil. Cook salami and garlic until salami is crisp. Cook spaghetti; before draining, reserve 1 cup pasta water. Add hot pasta to egg mixture, along with garlic and half the salami. Toss, adding enough pasta water to coat pasta in a creamy sauce. Season with salt and pepper, if needed. Serve topped with a sprinkle of parsley and remaining salami.
