• 1 pound bacon
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 8 ounces linguine
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup grated parmesan
  • 6 green onions, sliced
  1. Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crispy, stirring occasionally. Do not drain bacon fat when done. Season bacon with pepper.
  2. Prepare pasta according to package instructions. Add peas one minute before cook time is finished. Reserve one cup of pasta water.
  3. Whisk 2 tablespoons pasta water into warm bacon fat.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk egg. Add 2 tablespoons of bacon fat mixture to egg and whisk together. (This warms it up so it won't scramble when added to pan.)
  5. Add all of egg mixture to pan and stir. Toss with linguine, peas, parmesan, and green onions.
  6. Top with additional parmesan.
