Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb noodles we typically use egg noodles or rotini
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Instructions
 

  • Cook pasta according to directions on the package. Drain and allow to set for 1-2 minutes before adding the sauce.
  • In a small dish, add the cornstarch and mix it with a bit of cold water until it has discolved.
  • In a small sauce pan, add 3/4 cup of the heavy cream, the cheese, cornstarch and all of the seasonings. Stirring, bring this to a boil and then remove from heat and allow to sit for 1-2 minutes.
  • While the sauce is heating, mix the egg yolks and remaining cold cream into a small bowl. Once you have removed the sauce and allowed it to cool for 1-2 minutes, vigorously mix in the cold cream/egg mixture.
  • Pour over your pasta noodles and serve immediately.

Notes

Since there is egg in this dish, it is critical that you don't cook the eggs in the sauce as they will scramble. If you follow the recipe as stated, they will make a luxuriously creamy sauce --> if you try to cook the eggs in the mixture, it will not turn out.
