8 eggs

Salt and lots of freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

1/4 cup milk

1/2 pound pancetta, or thickly sliced bacon, sliced crosswise into 1/4-inch strips

1 garlic cloves, minced, optional

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 cup fresh Italian parsley stems discarded before measuring


  1. In a bowl, beat eggs, salt, black pepper, cheese, and milk. Set aside.
  2. Cook pancetta in a saute pan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until it is done like crisp pieces of bacon. Drain off excess fat (but leave about 2 tablespoons in the pan).
  3. Add garlic and bell pepper to the pan and cook over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, or until garlic shows the first sign of turning golden.
  4. Add Italian parsley. Stir for 1 more minute.
  5. Reduce heat to medium, add egg mixture to pan, and stir until eggs are cooked to your liking. Serve immediately on warmed plates.
