• ½ kg bacon
  • 600 ml cream
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • 1 egg
  • 500 gm fettucini


  1. Chop bacon into small squares and fry in frying pan till crisp.
  2. Remove from pan and discard any excess fat (into a cup and later to the bin).
  3. Add cream to the same pan and crush through all the garlic and more if you like.
  4. Let come to the boil while watching and immediately turn down to a soft roll. Stir from time to time and marvel in the reducing and thickening that comes with cooking with cream.
  5. When the right consistency add the fried bacon and mix through.
  6. Turn off.
  7. Cook pasta.
  8. When ready to serve crack the egg into the sauce and mix fast with a wooden spoon – not over heat.
  9. Serve with parmesan and a crisp green salad.
