Ingredients

  • 8 ounces spaghetti uncooked

  • 6 oz pancetta chopped

  • 2 cups half and half

  • 2 large egg yolks

  • 1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese freshly grated, plus more for garnish

  • 1 tsp pepper freshly ground

  • 4 tbsp basil chopped

Directions

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
  • Add the pancetta to a large skillet and saute over medium-low heat until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer the pancetta to a bowl using a slotted spoon.
  • Add the half and half to the skillet and bring to a simmer. Whisk the egg yolks into the sauce. Whisk in the Parmesan cheese. Stir in the black pepper. Taste for salt and season if needed. I find no salt is needed since the cheese adds plenty of saltiness.
  • Add the cooked spaghetti, bacon and basil to the skillet and toss well to combine.
  • Garnish with more Parmesan cheese if desired and serve immediately.
