Linguine Carbonara
linguine pasta

1/4 cup of cream per person
1 egg per person
salt and pepper
1/4 of pecorino cheese (same as parmesan cheese but from sheep milk instead of cow's milk. Much sharp flavor compare to the parmesan)
Cook pasta as directed from the box. in the mean time, in a skillet, cook bacon, and do not throw away a small bowl, add cream, egg/s, salt and pepper, cheese and whisk it together. Once pasta is cooked, drain it from water, add it to the pan with bacon, add mix of egg/s and cream and toss. Serve and eat IMMIDEATELEY.
