  • Meanwhile, add bacon to a large sauté
    pan. Cook over medium heat 6 minutes or
    until slightly crispy. Drain on paper
    towels, reserving 2 tbsp of the drippings.

  • Blend milk, eggs, egg yolks and salt.

  • Heat bacon drippings over medium
    heat. Whisk in flour; cook 1 minute.
    Quickly pour in milk mixture, whisking
    constantly to keep eggs from scrambling.
    Cook 2 to 3 minutes until thickened.
    Remove from heat and whisk in 1/2 cup
    of the cheese.

  • Toss drained pasta with sauce, bacon,
    remaining 1/4 cup cheese and some of the reserved pasta water. Sprinkle with black pepper just before serving.
