How to Make It

Cook the pasta according to the package directions.

Meanwhile, fry the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. Transfer to a paper towel and reserve the drippings.

In a large bowl, whisk the egg yolks. Still whisking constantly, add 2 tablespoons of the drippings. Working quickly, add the drained pasta and Parmesan to the yolk mixture and toss to combine. Add the salt, pepper, parsley, and bacon. Serve immediately. (The heat of the pasta cooks the eggs, but not thoroughly. It may be advisable for young children, the elderly, and anyone with a compromised immune system to avoid eating this dish.)

Tip: Use a pair of clean scissors or kitchen shears, not a knife, to dice the bacon. It's much quicker and makes less of a mess.

This was a very good meal, I loved it!!! I do wish that I used more bacon in the mix! But it was just delicious. I will surely make it again.

Very tasty. Luckily the bacon finished cooking just as the pasta was ready to drain, so the grease and pasta were very hot when I added them to the egg yolks. Got thumbs up from the family; will make again.
