1 lb. bacon
1 lb. rigatoni, penne, or ziti pasta
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup (2-ounces) cream cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 whole eggs
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
Directions: In a skillet, fry the bacon until crisp. When done, remove bacon until cool enough to handle and roughly chop.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta in boiling salted water until done.
Place cream and cream cheese in a small saucepan. Heat over low until cream cheese is melted, and whisk until smooth. Remove from heat. Add the Parmesan cheese, eggs, pepper, and crushed red pepper and whisk until blended.
Stir in the bacon, and add some reserved pasta water until desired consistency is reached.
