When pasta is boiled, add to it the sauce previously created and bacon, mix it, add pepper.

This is a light version of Carbonara. In fact, it is possible to use two whole eggs or to add soul cream in order to create a more creamy sauce.

Bacon can be replaced by speck, ham or other sliced cold cuts.

You can add parsley, salt, olive oil or decorations as you prefer.
