This recipe is great if you have some extra eggs laying around since you technically need 7 of them. Eggs, pork fat, and parmesan cheese make up the base of this rich and silky pasta.

Author's Notes

Don't toss those egg whites! Leftover egg whites should be put in airtight containers and stored in the refrigerator immediately. They will last for 2 days in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer and can be used in meringues, egg white omelettes, face masks, candied nuts, and even granola!

Whisk eggs together with ½ Cup Parmesan, Salt (to taste) , and Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste) until creamy.
