We love pasta around here and this dish was no exception…
1 box spaghetti
8 oz pancetta, cut into thin strips (can use bacon instead)
1/4 cup olive oil
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup Romano cheese, grated
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
Salt and pepper, to taste
Cook pasta according to the directions on the box.
Beat egg yolks with cheeses and salt and pepper.
Cook pancetta in skillet over medium heat for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently. Add olive oil.
Drain pasta and add to pancetta, stir and cook for one to two minutes.
Add egg and cheese mixture to pasta and cook until eggs have thickened up, stirring constantly.
We had this with a simple salad and grapes.
What did the family think? After our youngest got over the fact that this was not the type of pasta with red sauce everyone loved it and wanted seconds. Everyone even loved the pancetta (and these are kids who refuse to eat bacon.)
