Ingredients to serve 4

  • 400g x fusilli
  • 400g x bacon – cut into thin strips
  • 4 x eggs (from your pantry)
  • 250ml x cream
  • 50g x parmesan cheese - grate finely

Method

Step 1

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil and boil the pasta till al dente – about 6 to 8

Step 2

Place a frying pan on medium to high heat. Sauté the bacon strips until crispy.

Step 3

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream and parmesan cheese (reserving a little cheese for the garnish).

Step 4

Once pasta is cooked, drain and place back in the pot along with the bacon and the egg mixture. Stir until well combined over very low heat – you want a nice creamy sauce and not scrambled eggs.

Step 5

To serve, divide the mixture between the bowls and scatter with a little grated parmesan.
