DIRECTIONS

  • Put large pot on to boil for pasta and cook pasta as directed.
  • Cut the bacon into 2" pieces and add to saute pan on medium.
  • Grate cheese.
  • Break eggs into large bowl and beat until smooth.
  • Add grated cheese to eggs and mix until a paste.
  • When pasta is "al dente", remove and drain.
  • Immediately add pasta to egg/cheese mixture and use tongs to rapidly toss, coating the pasta. (Don't worry about the raw egg, the hot pasta will cook it).
  • Add the bacon with about 1 teaspoon of drippings and continue to toss pasta until a creamy sauce evenly coats the pasta.
  • Serve and garnish with a sprinkle of cheese, fresh ground salt and pepper.
  • Watch your friends and family scrap the bowl!
  • Nice served with a salad and a crisp white wine!
