Ingredients

1 pound pasta, any shape

Kosher salt; freshly ground pepper

1 cup finely grated Parmigiano, plus more for serving

3 large egg yolks

¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

¼ cup (2 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature

Directions

Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until very al dente, 3 minutes less than the time indicated on the package.

While the pasta is cooking, whisk together 1 cup Parm and the egg yolks in a medium bowl; season generously with salt and pepper. When the pasta is about halfway done, slowly whisk about 1 cup of pasta cooking liquid into the egg and cheese mixture.

Reserve an additional 2 cups pasta cooking liquid; drain pasta (reserve pot). Return the pasta to the pot and add olive oil and butter; stir until butter is melted. Continue stirring and tossing constantly while gradually adding cheese mixture to pasta. Stir, more pasta cooking liquid as needed, until sauce is thickened and emulsified and blankets noodles completely. You may not need all the pasta water, but use enough to make things super saucy.

Serve pasta topped with pepper and more cheese.
