Pasta with salty bacon, covered in sharp, creamy cheddar is an easy dinner that brings big flavor to the table.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a skillet over a medium flame, then add meat and sauté until crisp, about 3 minutes.
Remove from pan with slotted spoon and place on paper towel to drain.
Add garlic to pan and sauté until just softened, do not brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
When pasta is ready, drain and return to pot, turn off stove.
Add pancetta/bacon, garlic, and oil and whisk together. Slowly stir in egg/cheddar mixture. Turn stove on low heat, stirring until the egg mixture thickens.
Once the mixture looks like sauce, remove from heat immediately so as not to overcook.
