  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1/2 lb pasta
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp oil from bacon
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • pinch black pepper
  • 2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley


  1. Cook bacon in pan until crispy. Reserve 2 tbsp of oil and drain out the rest. Remove bacon and slice into small pieces. Add garlic to pan with bacon oil and cook until soft.

  2. Meanwhile, in a separate pot, bring water to boil and cook pasta until al dente. Remove pasta and place in the bacon oil pan (which should still be hot) and add the olive oil on top of noodles. Working quickly, crack in eggs and start tossing noodles with tongs until egg is barely cooked and coated. Add in bacon and a little more than half of the parmesan cheese until mixed and coated. Sprinkle pepper, remaining Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley and serve.
