1 lemon

3/4 cup parmesan cheese, divided

1 tbsp white all-purpose flour

2 6.5oz cans chopped clams, drained

1 egg

6 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled

Cook tagliatelle according to package directions

While the pasta is cooking, melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat

Add the onions, sauté 2-3 minutes

Add the garlic, salt and pepper sauté another 2-3 minutes

Add 1/2 cup white wine

Slice the lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the skillet

Bring the lemon juice and white whine to a low boil

Add 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, stir with a wooden spoon

Add the flour, use your wooden spoon to make sure it all dissolves

When the flour has dissolved, add the clams, mix

Crack the egg into the skillet, using a fork scramble the egg so it cooks evenly into the sauce

If the sauce seems to thick at this point, thin it out with the remaining white wine

Place the cooked tagliatelle in a large bowl, pour the sauce over the pasta and toss gently to coat
