    • 200ml Double cream
    • 2 Egg yolks
    • 150g Bacon
    • 60-80ml milk (To get the mixture to a liquid consistency.)

    • pinch of salt


    1. Bring a large pan to the boil half full of water.
    2. Add the tagliatelle and cook according to packaging.
    3. Drain pasta and keep warm.
    4. Meanwhile mix 3/4 of the Parmesan with cream, egg yolks, pepper and salt. Then add the milk to create a liquid substance.
    5. Next fry the bacon until browned and add the pasta into the bacon.
    6. Next add the creamy mixture into the pasta and bacon and stir thoroughly until everything comes together. Then fry for 1 to 2 minutes to cook the egg through. Make sure to catch the edge of the pan with the spoon to stop the mixture sticking of curdling.
