Ingredients for the noodles:
Place the wheat flour and durum wheat semolina—except for the small amount of semolina—in a large bowl. Add the eggs, olive oil, salt and water and mix with your fingers. When the consistency becomes doughy, start kneading and make a hard dough. If the dough is too dry, add a tablespoon of water.
Divide the dough ball into pieces and flatten. Process on the roller of the pasta machine into a smooth dough. Sprinkle the rest of the durum wheat on top to prevent possible sticking. Roll out the dough on speed 6. Then prepare the spaghetti with the corresponding roll. Place in a saucepan of salted water and bring to a boil. Cook the spaghetti in it for about 3 minutes.
Cut the bacon into strips and fry in a pan with a little olive oil, but don’t let it get too crispy. Grate pecorino, leaving a small amount for sprinkling. In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining egg and cream.
Remove the pasta from the water with spaghetti tongs and add to the pan with the bacon. Beat well, then pour into the bowl with the egg mixture. Stir vigorously until the egg mixture sticks to the noodles and forms a creamy sauce. If necessary, add a little more pasta water.
Ingredients for serving:
Divide the pasta between plates and sprinkle with pepper and grated pecorino. Sprinkle with chives if desired.
