Method

30 mins
 

Cook pasta in a large saucepan of boiling salted water according to the packet instructions.   

Meanwhile, heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat.

Cook bacon, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes until crisp.

Add garlic, cook for 30 seconds, set pan aside.  

Place eggs, yolk, cream and Parmesan in a bowl.

Season with salt and pepper, mix gently with a fork.   

Drain pasta, return to pan. Quickly add egg and bacon mixtures and parsley.

Toss to combine (the heat from the pasta will cook the egg slightly and form a creamy sauce). Serve immediately with extra Parmesan.
