"The addition of sugar snap peas brings seasonal flavor (and sneaks extra veggies) into this classic pasta dish. It's from a local grocery story magazine."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

In small bowl, whisk eggs and 1/2 cup cheese. Set aside at room temperature.

Step 2

In large pot of salted water, bring to a boil, add pasta and cook until almost done, about 8 minutes. Add sugar snap peas and cook until pasta and peas are done, about 4 minutes longer. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water before draining.

Step 3

Meanwhile, in large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until brown and crispy (safe internal temp. 145°F). Remove bacon from skillet and chop. Reserve excess fat in skillet.

Step 4

Add garlic to same skillet and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Step 5

Reduce heat to low and add pasta with pea. Add egg mixture, stirring to combine and cook (safe internal temp. 160°F). Use reserved pasta water to reach desired consistency.

Step 6

Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and garnish with parsley and additional Parmesan. Serve immediately, refrigerating any leftovers.
