  • 4 Eggs; room temperature

step-by-step directions
  • Bring a large pot of Salted Water to a boil.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low with a few tablespoons of Olive Oil. Add the Bacon and cook, stirring occasionally, until Bacon is crisp.
  • Add the Spaghetti to the boiling water and cook 1 minute short of the package instructions. Drain, reserving a cup of pasta water.
