1/2 pound bacon, cooked and roughly chopped
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (or less if you don’t want the heat)
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 pound penne pasta
1/2 cup heavy cream (I just use milk)
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
2 whole eggs
1/4 tsp pepper
2 grilled chicken breast, sliced
Cook the pasta in boiling salted water according to package directions.
Place cream (or milk) and cream cheese in a small saucepan. Heat over low until cream cheese is melted, and whisk until smooth. Remove from heat. Add the parmesan cheese, eggs, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and pepper and whisk until blended. Don’t worry…the heat from the cream mixture will cook the eggs.
Drain pasta (reserving 1/2 cup of hot water) and return to pot. Immediately add the white sauce and toss to coat. Stir in the bacon, and add some reserved pasta water to loosen the sauce. Top with grilled chicken and more parmesan. Enjoy!
