  • 200g of tagliatelle (dry or fresh)
  • 2-3 rashers or 1 pack of bacon lardons or equivalent of pancetta
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 100ml cream
  • Handful frozen peas
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 tbsp grated parmesan (plus some shavings to serve if you are bothered!)
  1. Place the pasta in a pot of boiling water and cook according to instructions. When almost cooked add a handful of frozen peas for the last minute.
  2. At the same time, chop the bacon/pancetta into small pieces and fry quickly in a hot frying pan.
  3. Beat the eggs and mix with the cream and 1tbsp of grated parmesan. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. When the pasta is cooked, drain, return to the saucepan and add in the egg mix. Stir well to coat the pasta. The hot pasta will cook the eggs.
  5. Add the bacon and serve on a plate with some fresh shavings of parmesan
