The only downside of this dish is that it requires two pots and one skillet. That said, the dish comes together than clean up!

Ingredients
1 pound bacon, chopped (I didn’t have a full pack so I used only about 1/2-3/4)
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 pound rigatoni or penne pasta
1/2 cups heavy cream (I used skim milk since that was all I had on hand)
1/4 cups cream cheese (I used neufchatel)
1/4 cups Parmesan cheese, grated
2 eggs
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions
Set a pot of water on the stove to boil. Cook pasta according to package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water and drain.

Cook the bacon in a skillet and sprinkle with red pepper flakes.

In a small saucepan, heat the heavy cream and cream cheese over low and whisk until smooth. Remove from heat and whisk in the Parmesan and pepper. Whisk in the eggs.

Toss the pasta with the sauce to coat. Stir in the bacon, and add some reserved pasta water if needed to loosen the sauce.
