  1. Heat olive oil in a large heavy saucepan over medium heat. Saute shallots until softened. Stir in onion and bacon, and cook until bacon is evenly browned. Stir in garlic when bacon is about half done. Remove from heat.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain pasta, then return it to the pot.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg yolks, cream, and shredded Parmesan. Pour the bacon mixture over the pasta, then stir in the cream mixture. Season with salt and pepper.

I have made this many times and my family loves it! I, however, fry the bacon cut up first,remove some of the bacon fat and then fry the onions, shallot and garlic. This gives a good flavor. ...

Too much grease and oil, so with some modifications this was a 5 star recipe. I cut the bacon back by 1/3 and fried it first (set it aside.) Then I drained off more than half the grease and sa...
