“My family really enjoyed this meal. We served it with roasted asparagus and Italian seasoned monkey bread. I forgot to reserve the pasta sauce (which is why I put it in the ingredients list) and ended up using a little chicken broth to thin as needed--worked out just fine. Recipe source: Family Circle, January 2008.”

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions or until al dente.
  2. While pasta is cooking, heat a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add the pancetta (or thick cut bacon) and cook until crisp (approximately 6 minutes). Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the fat.
  3. Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water and then drain the pasta. Add the past to the skillet of pancetta and toss to combine.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the egg yolks. Turn off the heat under the skillet, add the eggs and 1 cup of cheese, and toss thoroughly to combine. Add the reserved pasta water as needed to thin the sauce to the desired consistency. Season with salt and a generous amount of freshly ground black pepper, to taste.
  5. Serve immediately with the remaining 1/4c of cheese sprinkled on top.
