I was looking for a way to use up some left-over bacon and modified an old recipe to make this deliciously comforting, creamy, cheesy pasta sauce. I served it over spaghetti, but you could serve it over any pasta of your choice.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from pan with a slotted spatula and place in a single layer between two pieces of paper towel to remove excess grease.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and keep warm.
  3. Combine egg, milk and butter in a medium saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture coats the bottom curve of a metal spoon. Do not boil.
  4. Add cooked bacon, parmesan cheese, scallions and pepper to sauce and stir gently to combine.
  5. Serve over spaghetti (or any pasta of your choice).

Very good but better the following day. I went heavier on the scallions but other than changes were made. TFS. made for the Aussie/NZ RS#33.

Really liked this! I bought fresh pasta at our farmers market today. It made this dish absolutely taste so fresh! I made as is to try first, then added just a pinch or fresh grated nutmeg. It really gave that "hmmm" factor! Thanks so much for posting! Made for My 3 Chefs '08
