  • Beat the eggs in a small bowl until fluffy, then mix in the grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Once the pasta is cooked, quickly drain it and move into the bowl with pancetta and garlic. Toss everything to combine, and then add beaten eggs and cheese.  You need to do these steps quickly, as you want the pasta to be hot when you add eggs.  It’s the heat from the pasta that will heat the eggs and create a light creamy sauce.  Mix once again until well combined.  Season with salt and pepper.
