Serves 4 | Prep 12 minutes | Cook 12 minutes
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta according to package instructions, drain reserving ¼ cup water.
In a small bowl whisk the eggs, add the Parmesan and stir combine.
In a large frying pan over a medium high heat, sauté the bacon until brown and crispy, 6 minutes.
Together, with the 1/4 reserved water, quickly add the egg and bacon mixtures together with the pasta. Toss to combine - the heat from the pasta will cook the egg slightly and form a creamy sauce.
2 large eggs
½ cup freshly grated parmesan
4 slices bacon, diced
Optional: If you have a clove of garlic, add it to the bacon in the last minute of cooking. It adds a delicious aroma and flavour. Serve sprinkled with extra parmesan and freshly chopped parsley.
