1 pkg bacon
10 portobello mushrooms
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
8 egg yolks
1 cup parmesan cheese
fresh parsley
fresh basil
garlic powder

Matchstick bacon and cook till done but soft. Remove bacon, but keep the grease.

Thinly slice 10 portobello mushrooms (not too thin, you want them as the “noodles” so you don’t want them to disintegrate when cooking)

Saute them in the bacon grease with 4 or 5 minced cloves of garlic and remove from the pan. Pile them on 4 plates.

Pour 1 cup of heavy cream in the pan and return to heat, on low. In a bowl mix another 1 1/2 cups cream, 8 egg yolks and 1 cup of fresh parmesan cheese, a handful of chopped fresh parsley and some chopped fresh basil (or a spinkle or dried) salt and pepper, and some garlic powder. Whisk into pan, making sure it’s not too hot or the eggs will overcook and curdle. Whisk until the sauce thickens.
Ladle sauce over mushroom “noodles” and try not to lick your plate when you’re done. Try, but no one will fault you for licking! 😉
