This is totally my favorite pasta dish I make. It's simultaneously easy and impressive; great for company. Have you ever had pasta carbonara? The sauce is a decadent mixture of cream, raw eggs and parmesan cheese. The hot buttered noodles are smothered in the sauce, and then tossed with bacon and parsley. Top with fresh cracked pepper and serve!
Pasta Carbonara
source: All Recipes

1/2 pound bacon, cut into pieces
4 eggs room temperature
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 lb dry spaghetti 
1 stick of butter, softened
handful of parsley, chopped
ground black pepper

Start boiling a big pot of water for your spaghetti. Cook bacon pieces in a large pan until crisp and set aside to drain on paper towels. Reserve the bacon grease if you want and wipe out the bottom of your pan with a paper towel. 

Cook the spaghetti according to package directions. In a medium bowl, beat eggs and cream together. Stir in the parmesan and set aside. Cut up the stick of butter into a few pieces.

Once the spaghetti is cooked, drain it and put the noodles into the pan you cooked the bacon in. Plop the pieces of butter onto the spaghetti and stir until melted. Pour in the egg, cream and cheese mixture and toss until mixed. Stir in the bacon and parsley, and serve
