Twenty minutes and five ingredients are all you need to make this bacon pasta from Food Network Magazine. Add a runny, sunny-side-up egg and a sprinkling of chives on top for the perfect (speedy) meal.
1 pound spaghetti
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
6 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
Freshly ground pepper
6 large eggs
Finely chopped fresh chives, for topping
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as the label directs. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the cooking water.
Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a separate large pot over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook until crisp, 7 to 9 minutes.
Add the pasta, 1/2 cup reserved cooking water and the parmesan to the pot with the bacon. Cook, stirring and adding more cooking water as needed until coated; season with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the eggs and cook until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny, about 4 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Top the pasta with the eggs and chives.
