This is my favorite comfort food dish. It might even be my favorite dish, period. I CRAVE this. It’s so rich and delicious, it’s definitely a once a year kind of thing. Once, in a moment of insanity, I tried fussing with it to make it slightly less deadly – using egg beaters (gross!), turkey bacon, and FF half and half, but it was a total waste of time. I mean, if you’re going to have pasta with eggs, cream, and bacon, have pasta with eggs, cream, and bacon. Am I right?
Also, this dish really benefits from some freshness in the way of chives — cuts through the richness a bit. Unfortunately, when Brian offered to run to the corner store for me, he came home with 4 bunches of GIANT scallions instead. He means well 🙂
