Super easy and wow was it good! I used bacon rather than ham, 2 eggs and I doubled the cheese. My husband said "you can make this any time you want to". That makes it a 10 star recipe in my world! Thanks for Posting!

  3. In a bowl, lightly beat eggs & cream together & season well with salt & pepper.
  4. When pasta is cooked, drain it well & return to pan, then add ham, mushrooms & any pan juices ~ Stri into pasta.
  5. Pour in eggs, cream & half the Parmesan cheese. Stir well, & as you do this, the eggs will cook in the heat of the pasta.
