failed: Ingredients:
1 lb
Spaghetti (Any pasta will do)
4 oz
Pancetta (Sliced 1/4" thick, cut into strips 1" long and 1/8" thick)


Start a pot of water heating for the spathetti, and while that's coming to
a boil,
Cut pancetta into matchstick strips - cook quickly over high heat and
remove to a warm plat - think good crisp bacon..
Cook the spaghetti al dente per package directions, drain and place in
large serving dish
Drizzle with good olive oil
Crack eggs into a cup, stir with fork, breaking yolks and blending yolks
and whites
To the spaghetti, add the panchetta, then the yolks and toss with salad
tongs - the hot spaghetti should cook the eggs and lightly coat the pasta
Season with cracked pepper and pinch of salt
Serve immediately
