Why I Love This Recipe

Found this online and made a few changes.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound angel hair pasta
1 tablespoon olive oil
10 ounces pancetta (or bacon would suffice)
1.5 cup heavy cream
3 egg yolks
2.5 cups grated Parmesan/Romano cheese
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)


Directions

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the olive oil, mushrooms and pancetta to skillet, and cook until the pancetta is browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove skillet from heat, and keep warm.


Cook spaghetti in boiling water until al dente, about 8 minutes. While spaghetti is cooking, whisk cream, egg yolks, 2 cups of cheese, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl until combined. Drain pasta, and return to saucepan. Immediately stir in egg-and-cheese mixture until well combined. Add warm pancetta and fat from pan. Toss well. Thin sauce with additional cream, if necessary. Serve immediately, garnished with remaining grated cheese.
