Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

This got a huge thumbs up from my 5 and 8 year old. Added capers and used try-color rontini (since that's what I had on hand). Nice recipe!

Love this recipe. It is super easy to make and my kids ask for it all the time. We do use a lot less garlic and I add frozen peas to the water while the pasta is cooking.
