*NOTE: Original recipe used 4 Tbsp olive oil...that much isn't
necessary...we reduced it to 2 Tbsp and it was fine.

**NOTE: Original recipe used 5 Tbsp regular grated Parmesan cheese... part
was added with the yolks and part sprinkled on top when served... I reduced
the cheese to cut back on the fat.

Cook pasta till al dente or to your liking.

Heat olive oil and cook diced pancetta; before pancetta is brown add
garlic, red pepper flakes and half the parsley. Add wine and reduce by
half. Then add chicken stock bring to boil, simmer 10 - 15 min until
reduced to about half again. Remove from heat.

In bowl, put egg yolks and 2 Tbsp cheese, black pepper, add water from
pasta and whisk together.

Put sauce back on fire. Add cooked pasta to sauce and mix well. Bring heat
to high. Add in egg yolks and continue to toss to coat pasta... do this
with the frypan/saute pan held above the heat or you will have scrambled
eggs and you don't want that.

Plate and serve with extra cheese and chopped parsley sprinkled on top if

This was fabulous!! Definitely a keeper.
