Directions

Bring pot of salted water to boil and add pasta. Cook for 9-11 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook bacon over medium low until crispy. In last few minutes, add garlic and allow to soften.

In oven-safe serving bowl, combine egg beaters, cheese, and black pepper. Stir to combine. When pasta is cooked, drain and add to egg mixture, stirring constantly. Add bacon. Stir well. If sauce is too thin, place bowl over still-warm stovetop (overwhich pasta was cooking). Stir and allow heat to thicken sauce. Serve immediately.
