White flour
1 tablespoon
Melting sliced cheese
2 slices
Consommé granules
2 teaspoons
Bacon and your favourite ingredients

3. Put the egg yolk and thinly shredded cheese into a bowl.
4. Heat the butter in a frying pan and stir-fry the ingredients from Step 2 with the white flour.

7. Place the pasta from Step 6 and a ladleful of the boiled pasta water into the bowl from Step 3, and mix it well until the cheese melts.
