3. 3 eggs plus 3 egg yolk
4. 3/4 cup whipping cream
5. 50g parmesan cheese
6. Salt and black pepper (to taste)
METHOD:
1. In a pot, add some olive oil and water. Boil.
2. Once the water is boiling, add the spaghetti and cook until al Dante (it took 9 mins for my no 13 Barilla linguine)
3. Drain the water and set aside.
4. In a frying pan, add some olive oil and pan fried bacon until crispy. Remove bacon and keep the oil in the pan.
5. In a bowl, add egg, cream, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, mix well.
