“This came from the May 2005 issue of Family Circle Magazine. Very good, but definitely not something for someone counting carbs and watching fat constantly. I splurged and made this my fat food for the week.”

Directions

  1. Cook pasta in lightly salted boiling water until tender but still firm, 9 minutes. Drain and keep warm.
  2. While pasta is cooking, place bacon in a medium-size nonstick skillet. Cook until slightly browned, about 5 to 7 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Whisk together cream and egg yolks in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat, whisking, until temperature reaches 140F on an instant-read thermometer about 6 to 7 minutes and maintain 140F for at least 3 minutes. Stir in basil, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  4. Add bacon and drippings to cooked pasta. Stir in cream and egg mixture. Stir in 1/2 cup of the cheese.
  5. Spoon pasta into a large serving bowl and sprinkle remaining cheese over the top. Serve immediately.
