  • 1 Tbsp parsley
  • 1/4 cup water

PREPARATION
  1. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions and drain. 
  2. Cook the bacon in a large pan until crispy. Stir the garlic into the the bacon and stir for about a minute.
  3. Whisk the eggs and cheese together in a small bowl. 
  4. Add the pasta to the pan and stir. 
  5. Quickly add the egg mixture, stirring continuously. Make sure to work the eggs in quickly. 
  6. Add the peas, the seasonings and water, stirring over low heat until the peas are warm.

I do like this sauce on a very rare occasion but have not tried making it. If I do I will omit the bacon--yup-I am not a fan of bacon.
