Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 rashers smoked bacon
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 180 ml whipping cream
  • 6 tblsp freshly grated parmesan
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 2 tblsp chopped basil
  • 2 tblsp chopped parsley
  • 4 small chicken breasts
  • Pinch Salt
  • pinch ground black pepper
  • 450g Spaghetti

Recipe Instructions

1. Heat the oil in a heavy large frying pan over medium heat. Add the bacon and garlic and saute until it is brown and crisp, about 8 minutes.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the cream, cheese, yolks, basil, and parsley to blend.

3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the spaghetti and cook until it is just tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Drain.

4. Add the chicken to the pan with the bacon and stir to combine. Next, add the spaghetti and the cream mixture and toss over medium-low heat until the chicken is heated through and the sauce coats the spaghetti thickly, about 4 minutes (do not boil). Season the pasta, to taste, with pepper and salt if needed. Transfer the pasta to a large wide serving bowl.
