Total Time
30 Minutes

  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 12 ounces spaghetti
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan
  • ½ cup grated Pecorino
  • 1 (12-ounce) can SPAM® Less Sodium, diced
  • Freshly cracked black pepper and salt, to taste
  • Chopped Italian parsley, if desired
  1. Bring 6 quarts of water and salt to boil. Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Reserve ¾ cup pasta water, then drain.
  2. In medium bowl, whisk the eggs and cheeses until well combined.
  3. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the SPAM® Less Sodium; cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until crispy and golden. Add spaghetti, stirring and shaking pan to combine.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat. Add egg mixture, stirring quickly until the eggs thicken. If the sauce seems too thick, thin it out with the reserved pasta water a bit at a time.
  5. Season liberally with freshly cracked black pepper. Divide the pasta into bowls and garnish with parsley, if desired. Serve immediately.
