Freshly ground black pepper


Simmer garlic in oil in a large skillet over low heat until garlic is golden.

Drain on a paper towel and pour out all but 1 tablespoons of oil.

Simultaneously, cook pasta according to package directions and drain, reserving two tablespoons of the cooking water.


Once the pasta is done, return wine mixture to medium low heat and add two tablespoons of pasta water.


Whisk the egg yolks into the sauce, being careful to avoid having the eggs curdle and cook, until the sauce is slightly thickened.


Blend in the cheese and the mix in pasta.


Put pasta on plates, and sprinkle with scallions and black pepper.
