  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. Cook linguine until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. As the water is being brought to boil, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in pancetta, and cook until browned. Remove to paper towels.
  3. Return skillet to heat, and pour in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Stir in crushed red pepper flakes. Then stir in spinach, and cook until softened. Return pancetta to the skillet, and stir in eggs. Cover, and turn off heat.
  4. When the pasta is done, drain, and mix into skillet, reserving some pasta water. If the pasta is too dry, add a small amount of pasta water. Top with freshly grated Parmesan.

I used bacon in this recipe instead of pancetta and it had a very bitter taste. Perhaps it would have tasted much better with the pancetta but I don't think I will bother with it again.

We liked this very much. I used bacon instead of pancetta. I did have to use some of the pasta water. Next time, I am going to add sundried tomatoes to see if that kicks up the flavors. This wil...

Good recipe. If you use the pound of pasta, you will need to at least double your other ingredients. To make this a stand out dish, use fresh pasta instead of dried. Fresh can usually be found i...
