Directions

  1. Cook pasta al dente; keep warm over hot water. Fry bacon slices to not-quite-crisp, drain on paper towel, crumble or chop into small dice. Poach seafood gently in the half-and-half (with added wine optional) until translucent. Add some of the hot half-and-half mixture to the egg yolks, then stir egg yolk mixture carefully into the rest of the half-and-half mixture, stirring so that eggs don't curdle. Add the grated cheese, roasted red pepper, and bacon to the half-and-half mixture. Put hot pasta in serving bowl, add the butter and toss to coat. Then pour half-and-half mixture over pasta and toss gently. Serve immediately with fresh ground pepper, salt, and extra grated Paremsan to taste.
