Ingredients

  • 1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated linguine
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 8 cooked bacon strips, chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • Cook linguine according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  • In a small bowl, whisk flour and cream until smooth; stir into the pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 1 minute or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot mixture into eggs; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.
  • Drain linguine; add to the pan. Stir in bacon and cheese; heat through.

Test Kitchen Tip
  • Save some of the water you cook the pasta in and add it to the finished pasta if you like your sauce a little looser.
