Carbonara for tonight's dinner

Oh, my god, it's 6pm already and nothing's ready for dinner. All right then, I'll make it simple and for sure, I'll please my audience, in other words my kids. I have penne pasta, eggs, bacon, parmesan and heavy cream in my fridge. Good.

Now, very simple, cook the pasta al dente (around 10 min in boiling water). In the meantime, cut the bacon in small strips and fry them until slightly brown, but not too much. Drain the pasta, add an egg yolk, 1/3 cup of heavy cream, 4 tbsp of grated parmesan and the bacon strips. Mix together in the pot, reheat for a couple of minutes and stir, so that the cream finishes to cook the pasta and enjoy!

I hope my italian friends will agree on that recipe!
