This is from The River Cafe (London), my favorite restaurant! Totally rich and sinful.

ingredients

directions

  • In a large pan fry the pancetta in olive oil, slowly, so that it releases its own fat before becoming crisp. Add some black pepper.
  • Beat the egg yolks with the cream and season with salt and pepper. Add half of the parmesan.
  • Meanwhile, cook the penne (according to package directions) in a large pot of salted boiling water and then drain thoroughly.
  • Combine immediately with the hot pancetta and the oil, and then pour in the cream mixture. Stir to coat each pasta piece; the heat from the hot pasta will cook the egg slightly.
  • Finally add the remaining Parmesan and serve.
