I used 3 eggs, halfnhalf instead of cream, and added some garlic and chopped green onions for extra flavor. My family loved it. Very quick to prepare (20 min.) A keeper.

This is always been one of my favorite pasta dishes. I used pancetta instead of bacon, cooking the pancetta in olive oil until lightly crisp. I added another 1/4 cup of Parmesan to the dish and a pinch of salt to the cream to heighten the flavors. Some sauted crimni mushrooms rounded out the dish.

This was a good recipe. It did need a little more flavor. I added more parmesan cheese and more salt and that really was enough to make everyone inhale it.
