Ingredients

4 slices bacon, chopped

4 slices pancetta, chopped

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 cups whipping cream

1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan

6 large egg yolks

18 ounces fresh fettuccine

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Directions

Saute the bacon and pancetta in a heavy large frying pan over medium heat until almost crisp, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the bacon and pancetta and saute until the bacon is crisp and golden, about 2 minutes longer. Cool. Whisk in the cream, cheese, and yolks to blend.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the fettuccine and cook until it is just tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. Drain. Add the fettuccine to the cream mixture and toss over medium-low heat until the sauce coats the pasta thickly, about 5 minutes (do not boil). Season the pasta, to taste, with salt and pepper. Transfer the pasta to a large wide serving bowl. Sprinkle with chives and serve.
