bacon until it browns. Crumble cooked bacon, set aside. Add butter, garlic, and
crushed pepper flakes to bacon drippings. Saute garlic 2 minutes. Add chicken
stock to the pan, reduce the liquid, about 2 minutes. In a bowl or pan, beat
together egg yolks, 4 tablespoons cheese, and while whisking vigorously, stir ¼
cup boiling pasta water. Beat in parsley and pepper and set aside. Drain pasta.
Add pasta to pan with bacon and garlic. Over medium-low heat, toss pasta with
bacon mixture, then add egg mixture and toss 1 minute, then remove from heat.
Continue to toss until sauce is absorbed and thickly coating the pasta. Season
with salt and pepper and sprinkle servings with grated Parmigiano Reggiano.
