    SERVES 6
    Directions:
    Heat a large sauté pan until hot.

    Add pancetta and sauté until golden brown and
    crispy, about 5 minutes. Season with black pepper
    and remove pan from heat.

    In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and cream. Season
    with salt and pepper. Stir in Parmesan, reserving 2
    tablespoons for garnish.

    In a large pot, boil 6 quarts of salted boiling water.
    Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10
    minutes. Drain pasta in a colander. While the pasta
    is still hot, return it back to the pot. Add the
    browned pancetta and mix well. Add the cream
    mixture and coat the pasta completely. It's
    important to work quickly while the pasta is still
    warm so that the cream mixture will cook, but not
    curdle.

    Add remaining Parmesan and chopped parsley. Serve
    hot and enjoy!

    Sounds wonderful But I can only have 20 fat grams in a whole day. Carb intake is good in that recipe.

    Just do a few substitutions then...
    instead of panchetta, use canadian bacon, or turkey bacon...
    Eggs...use egg beaters or egg whites...
    cream...use half and half or whole milk...there's even a low fat half and half now...
