Why I Love This Recipe

My only change to Chrissy's original is more bacon. We made it her way the first time and thought it could have used more

Ingredients You'll Need

2 tablespoons olive oil
6-8 ounces thick-cut or regular bacon, diced
3 tablespoons chili garlic sauce
2 tablespoons blond or light miso
2 tablespoons hot water
3 eggs
¾ pound dry linguine
2 ounces finely grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese (about 1 ¼ cups), plus more for garnish
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ cup sliced scallion greens, plus more for garnish


Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a low boil, cover, and keep hot on a low burner. Heat the oil over medium heat in a large skillet, then add the bacon and cook until crisped and the fat is rendered, 9 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and reserve

Whisk together the chili garlic sauce, miso, and hot water until smooth, then beat in the eggs. Cook the pasta according to box instructions until al dente and drain, reserving ½ cup of the pasta cooking water

Add the pasta to the skillet with the bacon and toss to combine. Heat over medium heat until everything is nice and hot. Add the egg mixture, reduce the heat to low, and quickly toss until the eggs coat the pasta but aren’t scrambled. Add the cheese, pepper, and pasta water as desired until the sauce reaches your desired flavor and consistency. Taste, and add more chili garlic sauce if you like things spicy. Toss in the scallions. Divide among bowls, and garnish with more scallions and Parm
