Use a frying pan large enough to hold the pasta later, fry pancetta until light brown, add garlic & cook for a further 1 to 2 mins.
Add cooked pasta to the frying pan with either tongs or pasta server ladle taking a little of the pasta water with it.
Take off the heat & add yoke, cream cheese mix & toss or stir, then serve immediately before it has a chance to dry out as the pasta will absorb the sauce.
Place garnishes in bowls on the table so diners can add to there own taste.
Suggestion & Tips
You could use bacon either smoked or non smoked. Cream is not traditional so if you wish you can use whole eggs instead, the same applies if you add some mushrooms at step 3.
