Super simple dish. Without bacon or any meat. Perfect for those who are abstaining from meat this Lenten season. This pasta dish only has 3 ingredients: eggs, cheese and the fettuccine. My kids loved it even without their beloved bacon. :)
Mix the eggs and the grated cheese in a bowl.
You may use just Parmigiano- Reggiano (parmesan cheese) or Pecorino cheese. I used both because I love them both happen to have them on hand :)
Add the egg mixture to hot pasta and you’re done! How easy is that? And it’s healthy, too.
Happy Cooking! :)
- 12 ounces fettuccine
- 3 small eggs or 2 large eggs
- 100g grated parmesan and/or Pecorino cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1-2 tablespoons parsley flakes (optional)
- Cook pasta in a large pan of boiling salted water according to the packet instructions.
- Place eggs and parmesan/pecorino and parsley flakes in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper then mix gently with a fork.
- Drain pasta, then return to pan. Quickly add egg and cheese mixture. Toss to combine - the heat from the pasta will cook the egg slightly and form a creamy sauce.
- Serve immediately with extra cheese.
- Enjoy! :)
