    MarthaStewartWanabe's Note:

    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.

    1. 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. 2
      Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and keep warm.
    3. 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. 4
      Add cooked bacon, parmesan cheese, scallions and pepper to sauce and stir gently to combine.
    5. 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
