How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the pasta until al dente. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking water.


Step 2    

In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks with the whole egg, the 
1 cup of Gouda, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 2 teaspoons of black pepper. Very gradually whisk in 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking water to temper the eggs. 


Step 3    

Meanwhile, in the large pot, heat the olive oil. Add the bacon and cook over moderate heat until rendered but not crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the pasta, crushed red pepper and 1/4 cup of the reserved pasta cooking water. Cook, tossing, until the pasta is coated, 1 to 2 minutes. Scrape the pasta mixture into the large bowl and toss vigorously until creamy, 1 to 2 minutes; add more cooking water 
if needed. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the pasta into bowls and serve, passing more Gouda at the table.
