  • You Will Need:

  • ½

    pound bacon, chopped

  • 1

    tablespoon chopped garlic

  • Freshly ground black pepper

  • 1

    pound fresh spaghetti or fettucini, cooked al dente

  • 4

    large eggs, beaten

  • Salt

  • 1

    cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

  • 1

    tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley leaves

  • To make sauce: Saute onions in olive oil. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 2 hours.


In a large saute pan, over medium heat, cook the bacon until crispy, about 6 minutes. Remove the bacon and drain on paper towels. Pour off all of the oil except for 3 tablespoons. Add the garlic. Season with black pepper. Saute for 30 seconds. Add the crispy bacon and the pasta. Saute for 1 minute. Season the eggs with salt. Remove the pan from the heat and add the eggs, whisking quickly until the eggs thicken, but do not scramble. Add the cheese and re-season with salt and pepper. Mound into serving bowls and garnish with parsley.
