DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium bowl beat the eggs and cream together with a pinch of salt.
  • Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet.
  • Add the bacon and cook gently until the fat becomes transparent.
  • In a large pan of boiling water, cook the spaghetti according to package directions, just to "al dente" (do not overcook).
  • Drain pasta and add it to the bacon pan; stir well.
  • Remove the pan from heat and stir in the egg mixture with 1 tablespoon of each of the grated cheeses.
  • The eggs will coagulate as they blend with the hot pasta so work quickly.
  • Stir until all pasta is coated with the thick yellow cream.
  • Stir in the remainder of the cheese and freshly ground pepper to taste.
  • Serve at once.
