ACTIVE: 25 min/ TOTAL: 25 min/ SERVES: 4

Kosher salt

12 ounces fresh linguine

6 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

3 cups cherry or grape tomatoes

1 shallot, thinly sliced

2 large eggs

1/3 cup grated parmesan or pecorino romano cheese, plus more for topping

1 tsp finely grated lemon zest

Freshly ground pepper

1 cup fresh basil, torn

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as the label directs. Reserve 1 1/4 cups cooking water, then drain the pasta; set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and shallot and cook until the tomatoes are starting to burst, about 5 minutes.Pour off all but 2 tbsp of the drippings from the skillet.
  3. Whisk the eggs, cheese, lemon zest and 1 tsp pepper in a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in 1 cup of the reserved cooking water; set aside.
  4. Reduce the under the skillet to medium low. Add the pasta and toss well. Slowly pour in the egg mixture, tossing, to make a creamy sauce, about 1 minute. Season with salt and add the remaining 1/4 cup cooking water as needed to loosen. Stir in the basil. Top each serving with more cheese and season with pepper.
