Serves: 4
  • Fresh Pasta - to serve 4
  • 8 pieces of bacon
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • ½ medium onion, diced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 whole eggs
  • ¾ cup finely grated parmesan
  • ½ cup coarsely grated parmesan
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  1. Cook your pasta, while it is cooking fry the bacon until it is just this side of crispy. Remove the bacon from the pan and pat it dry with paper towel.
  2. Drain the bacon grease from the pan but don't wipe it out, you want that lovely grease to make your sauce.
  3. Place the minced garlic and diced onion into the pan on medium heat and brown it as the lovely smell surrounds you.
  4. In another bowl whisk the eggs, finely grated parmesan, pepper and cream until it's well combined.
  5. Drain your cooked pasta but keep aside some of the water in case you need it to add to your sauce. Place the drained pasta into the hot pan and slowly pour in the egg mixture, stirring constantly. When you've poured in half of the egg mixture, add in the bacon, green onion and tomatoes and continue stirring and adding the egg mixture.
  6. The heat of the pan and the pasta will begin to cook the sauce and the stirring will prevent the eggs from becoming scrambled. If you need to, add in some pasta water to help with the sauce consistency.
  7. Pour into bowls, top with coarsely grated parmesan and enjoy!
