  • Serves: 4-6 servings
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20-30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Journeyman Meat Co. Applewood Smoked Bacon, finely chopped
  • 4 Petaluma Egg Farm Eggs, beaten
  • 2 tbsp. Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 c. Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 lb. Spaghetti Pasta
  • Salt & Black Pepper, to taste
  • Parmesan Cheese (for serving)

Instructions

  1. Whip together beaten egg, cream, and grated parmesan cheese. Fry bacon until crispy in a large saute pan; while bacon cooks, cook spaghetti according to package directions in salted water. When bacon is cooked, remove from pan and drain, leaving grease in pan.

  2. Mix about 1 1/2 cups pasta water with bacon drippings in pan and bring to a rapid boil. When pasta is about 2 minutes from al dente, drain and add to saute pan with reserved water and drippings; turning frequently with tongs, continue cooking until pasta is al dente. Remove from heat and stir in beaten egg mixture, then return to low heat and cook (turning constantly) until a glossy sauce forms. Stir in reserved bacon, and season liberally with black pepper and with salt to taste.

  3. Serve topped with plenty of extra parmesan cheese.
