      Excellent recipe! To all those who had a "curdy" or "scrambled egg" sauce, you just cooked the sauce too long. I noticed the egg hardening in mine too and took it straight off the stove just in time. It was still delicious. Thanks for sharing!

      Tasty. I added a dab of our cream and some red pepper flakes.

      I've been making this for years, but had to give it up because of the pancetta. Finally! I have found a glorious beef substitute, and I'll be back to making it full time. I've loved it since the day I found it - cheesy, smokey, eggy goodness. Its just like I ate in Italy; great balanced flavours, not to much of any one thing, so all the ingredients work together perfectly. Brilliant!
