    Made this for me and my mom for lunch. I was a little nervous as a spooned a serving into a bowl, as it looked like a bowl of Mac & Cheese, but when I took a bite, all those fears went away. This was the hardest dish I have made yet, and I LOVED IT!!

    Okay I’m giving this a 4 because the final result is good, but the instructions and ingredients leave a lot to be desired. I had to watch the video and even that is messed up. He doesn’t use amounts for the extra water that he puts in the eggs. Also, I don’t think he used as many eggs as the recipe called for. The pecorino romano has a strong unusual smell that was a little off putting. I’d used just Parmesan.
    Creamy bacon yumminess...
