Ingredients

1/2 pound bacon, chopped

1 tablespoon chopped garlic

Freshly ground black pepper

1 pound fresh spaghetti, cooked al dente

4 large eggs, beaten

Salt

1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions

  1. 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.
