Place bacon into a pan and cook on medium until crispy, about 5 minutes. Strain and reserve the bacon fat.

2.

Fill a large pot with water and season with salt. Bring to a boil.

3.

Add the pasta and cook until al dente according to the package. Strain over a bowl to save the pasta water and set aside.

Once the cream starts to bubble, add the parmesan and continue cooking until it reaches sauce consistency, about 5-10 minutes.

8.

Add the pasta to the pan and a good amount of ground black pepper.

9.

Stir to coat the pasta with the sauce. If sauce is too thick, add up to a ¼ cup of pasta water.

10.

Finish the pasta with crispy bacon and parsley.

Enjoy with a glass of white wine.
