My favorite foods



1 lbs thick-sliced bacon, diced
1 lbs fettuccini noodles
3 pc large eggs
1/3 cup chopped parsley
1 tbsp dried Italian herbs/seasoning
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp fresh ground pepper

1. Saute the bacon in a small skillet until crisp.
2. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain well on a paper towel. 3. Cook fettuccini noodles according to package instruction until firm and tender.
4. Meanwhile, beat the eggs thoroughly in a large bowl suitable for serving.
5. Have the cooked bacon and the chopped parsley ready at hand.
6. When the pasta is done, drain it immediately in a colander, and pour into the bowl of eggs and immediately begin tossing it.
7. As the strands of pasta become coated with the beaten eggs, their heat will cook the eggs.
8. Sprinkle the bacon, Italian seasoning and parsley on, and serve immediately.
9. Top with lots of freshly grated parmesan cheese and freshly ground black pepper.

**Serves 4.
