Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3 ounces Parmesan cheese, finely grated (1 1/2 cups)
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 ounces thick-cut bacon (about 3 slices), cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 pound fusilli
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon zest, plus 3 tablespoons juice (from 1 large lemon)
  • 4 ounces frisee or escarole, cut into 3-inch pieces

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Whisk together eggs and cheese in a large bowl until combined, and season with salt and pepper. Cook bacon in a medium skillet over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente. Reserve 1 cup pasta water, and then drain pasta. Transfer pasta to bowl with egg mixture, tossing to combine. Add lemon zest, juice, and frisee and toss to combine, adding enough pasta water to form a smooth sauce that coats pasta. Season to taste with salt and pepper and top with bacon. Serve immediately.

    I loved the lemon zest but felt like I'd add the lemon juice to taste. It was a bit too lemony.
