  1. Heat olive oil and cook ham, garlic and onions over medium heat until onion is translucent. Add wine and let reduce until almost evaporated.
  2. Stir together egg yolks, eggs and parmesan cheese. Set aside.
  3. Cook pasta & peas together in a large pot of salted water just until pasta is al dente. Drain pasta ensuring that you reserve 1 1/2 cups of the cooking liquid.

  4. Immediately toss pasta with the egg mixture and ham (you must do this right away to ensure the hot pasta cooks the egg). Add reserved cooking liquid a little at a time to get desired consistency (I usually use about 3/4 cup). Stir in parsley and serve.
