Very Good, I changed a few things to make this restaurant quality: I only used 2 shallots, finely chopped, no onions, only 1/2 lb bacon and 4 boneless skinless chicken breast, 1 can peas, 1 cup heavy cream, 4 egg yolks, 1& 1/2 c shredded parm cheese and 3 cloves garlic. I grilled the chicken breast, slice them thin and set aside. I also cooked the bacon along with the shallots, then added garlic. I added the peas (drained) and the chicken at the end, topped with fresh cracked pepper. Very good and VERY easy
My DH and I made this for supper last night, and the end result was pretty good, but we did change the recipe quite a bit; here is what we did. We were only cooking for 3 people, so we cut the recipe in half for starters (using only 1/2 lb of linguini). We cut the bacon into small pieces and browned; about halfway through the browning process, we added a half a large onion, diced (it could have used more though). Once the onion was cooked and a bit caramelized, we added 1 clove of garlic, minced (should have used 2 cloves). We cooked that together just until the garlic was fragrant and meanwhile we cooked the pasta. In a small bowl, we whisked together 2 eggs, 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup whole milk (we didn't have any cream on hand), 1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg and pepper. Once the pasta was done cooking, we added it to the pan with the bacon and onions, piled it up high and dumped the egg mixture on top. Working quickly we folded the egg mixture into the pasta so as not to cook the eggs. Once thoroughly mixed, we removed it from the heat, tossed in some fresh flat leaf parsley and ate it (topped with more fresh parmesan and pepper). It was very tasty and we will make it again (with my suggestions) for sure.
I have made this many times and my family loves it! I however fry the bacon cut up first remove some of the bacon fat and then fry the onions shallot and garlic. This gives a good flavor. I also temper the egg yolks by warming the cream and temper the egg yolks and then put it all together. Love it!
Too much grease and oil, so with some modifications this was a 5 star recipe.
I cut the bacon back by 1/3 and fried it first (set it aside.) Then I drained off more than half the grease and sauteed the onion in it. (Didn't have a shallot so skipped it.) When the onions were almost done added 3 crushed cloves of garlic and a couple tablespoons of chicken broth. Used 3 eggs instead of 4 egg yolks and whipped them into 1 and 1/2 cups of heavy cream. Then when pasta was done I tossed it with the onion/garlic mixture and added the cream/egg mixture to it, cooking and tossing until it started thickening. Then I added 1 cup of parmesan and 1/3 cup mozzarella and tossed. Then seasoned it with a little nutmeg, black and cayenne pepper, and salt.
We loved this reciped thought we did change it a little instead of useing full cream we swapped it for light and creamy evaprative milk making it a little more healthy it was fantastic. We are going to add spinich next time we make it.
This was very good. I thought it was weird not to cook the eggs but it turned out well. I didn't have any shallots so I skipped that part drained all the bacon grease and used only half the noodles. I was great!
This was an exceptional recipe!! It was very easy but tastes like something you slaved over all day!! My neice is just about the pickiest eater in the world and even she loved it!! It even warmed up well as leftovers! I made it as is but added some sauteed scallops and shrimp for a little extra! YUMMY!!!!
This recipes just wasn't my cup of tea. It was easy to put together but it was kind of blah & bland. I followed the recipe exactely & wouldn't make again that way. I'd definitely have to spice it up a bit.
