    Nancy's Pantry's Note:

    Looks so good and delicious with cooked bacon and parmesan cheese. Of course, there are eggs and a little heavy cream to round out the flavors. Add some freshly ground black pepper and you are in heaven! Recipe is from Tyler Florence who says "if it weren't for this dish, he would have starved to death at college".

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for the spaghetti.
    2. 2
      Heat a 3-count of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the bacon and onion and cook for 7-8 minutes, until the onion is caramelized and the bacon is crisp. While cooking the onion and bacon, crack the eggs into a big serving bowl. Add the cream and cheese and whisk. Scrape the bacon and onion into the bowl along with the cooking fat.
    3. 3
      Before draining pasta, scoop out 1/4 cup of the pasta cooking water and add it to the bowl with the bacon and eggs. Drain the spaghetti and add it to the bowl - toss well. Place a plate on top of the bowl to hold in the heat and let sit 5 minutes. Remove the plate, toss in some salt and cracked black pepper and the parsley.

      Just loved it!!! My older sister my something very similar for her youngest daughter (it's her favorite meal) but it was called piggley spaghetti lol. I cut back the recipe to serve one, but for me, it would serve me at least twice, so good and cheap!! Who doesn't love cheese, cream, eggs, bacon and pasta, yummy!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe and I enjoyed it so much more then a sandwich for lunch! Made for PRMR Tag Game.
