Ingredients

  • 3 cloves garlic, lightly crushed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 pound bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup white wine, or water
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan, plus more for serving
  • 1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, or to taste
  • 1 pound linguine (or any other variety pasta)
  • Crushed hot red-pepper flakes, for serving

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add salt and pasta, and cook until pasta is al dente, following manufacturer's instructions.

  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in medium skillet. Add garlic, and cook until it begins to sizzle. Remove garlic from the oil, and discard. Add bacon, and cook until crisp, about 4 minutes. Drain off most of the fat. Add wine or water, and cook until slightly reduced, about 2 minutes. Set aside.

  3. In large pasta bowl, combine eggs, cheese, parsley, and black pepper.

  4. Drain cooked pasta, and immediately add to egg mixture. Toss until well coated. Add bacon, and toss to combine. Serve immediately, sprinkled with red-pepper flakes and additional Parmesan.

    I love this recipe!! This is truly made from the pantry and is a huge success everytime I have to come up with a meal for last minute guests. a green salad is perfect with it, and I can print out a copy of the recipe in a flash. I prefer linguine.
