Coal Miner’s Pasta


1 head of garlic
1/2 c. chicken stock
2 large egg yolks
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
Parmigiano Reggiano cheese (or just regular parmesan, which is what I use)

Place a large pot of water on the stove, bring to boil, throw in seasoning and add pasta. Cook and drain.

Meanwhile, cook up bacon. Place in skillet with a bit of the bacon grease and then add garlic and crushed pepper flakes. Add stock and reduce liquid (by boiling) by half (about a minute).

Beat together egg yolks, while whisking put in a ladle of the boiling pasta water.

Place all ingredients together and toss to coat, adding a handful of parmigiano reggiano cheese in.


This is our journey of adoption, love, homeschooling and living life to the fullest.....even if we do live in chaos (can't have anyone over syndrome).
