1 tablespoon
●Black pepper
to taste
1 tablespoon

2. Put the ingredients marked ● into a mixing bowl and combine well using a whisk.
3. Cut thickly sliced bacon into 1cm pieces. Heat olive oil in the skillet and sauté the bacon.
4. When the bacon browns, pour in heavy cream and simmer until it slowly starting to bubble. Stir together and turn off the heat.
5. Reheat the sauce so it's ready when the pasta is done. Toss the pasta into the sauce and combine briskly while shaking the pan.
6. When everything is combined well, turn off the heat and pour in the egg mixture from Step 2 and mix all together at once in residual heat. Be sure to remove the pan from the heat when pouring the sauce into the pasta.
7. Garnish with black pepper and Parmesan cheese (if desired) and it's done.
