6 slices thick-cut smoked bacon, roughly chopped
1 pound thick spaghetti
5 large egg yolks
1 large egg
2 tablespoons heavy cream
2 teaspoons ground black pepper, more or less depending on your tastes
1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
Chopped fresh parsley, to garnish (optional)
If you want to gussy up things a bit, swap out the bacon for pancetta or guanciale. If you're not into eating meat, leave it out and just replace the fat that you add to the pasta with some extra-virgin olive oil. I realize that date night for two and a dish that makes four servings might be a little incongruous, but wait and see how you feel about it when you're dishing up your second helping.
