Ingredients:

  • 2 packs of spinach tortelloni
  • 4 strips of bacon, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 1c parmesan cheese
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano

  1. Boil and salt the water for the tortelloni, add and cook the pasta. Remove the pasta when cooked, set aside saving the pasta water.
  2. In a pan, fry up the bacon pieces until crispy, remove and set aside, leaving the grease in the pan.
  3. Add garlic to bacon grease, cook for 1 minute.
  4. Whisk eggs, cheese, and onion powder together in a bowl. Add 2 TB of pasta water, one at a time, whisking vigorously to temper the eggs so they don’t cook and scramble.
  5. Add pasta to the pan. Slowly add in egg mixture and a little bit of pasta water at a time while stirring vigorously so they make a nice sauce.
  6. Add the bacon back in and top off with salt, pepper, basil, and oregano.
