  • 1   pound 
  • 6   
    slices bacon, diced
  • 1   cup 
  • 2   
    large eggs plus 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
  • 1   tablespoon 
    all-purpose flour
  • 3/4  cup 
    grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons 
    freshly cracked black pepper
Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook 10 minutes or as per package directions. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the pasta water.
Meanwhile, add bacon to a large saute pan. Cook over medium heat 6 minutes or until slightly crispy. Drain on paper towels, reserving 2 tbsp of the drippings.
Blend milk, eggs, egg yolks and salt.
Heat bacon drippings over medium heat. Whisk in flour; cook 1 minute. Quickly pour in milk mixture, whisking constantly to keep eggs from scrambling. Cook 2 to 3 minutes until thickened. Remove from heat and whisk in 1/2 cup of the cheese.
Toss drained pasta with sauce, bacon, remaining 1/4 cup cheese and some of the reserved pasta water. Sprinkle with black pepper just before serving.
