this is so good.  loosely adapted from a recipe from nigella lawson`s show "nigella`s bites" i saw on youtube years ago.  i make it in one frying pan to save on dishes.  first, boil water with a generous amount of coarse salt, break your pasta in half and cook with a splash of olive oil until al dente.  while it`s cooking, separate one egg and use only the yolk.  add a splash of lemon juice, parmesan cheese, pepper and salt to the egg yolk and beat with a whisk until fluffy, carefully adding in a splash of milk or cream.  drain the pasta but don`t rinse; while at its hottest put back in the frypan and remove from heat.  wait a second, then carefully pour on your egg mixture.  do not agitate, you want it to thicken but not scramble.  stir gently so that all the pasta is coated then plate & season liberally with pepper and parmesan cheese.  place a few slices of prosciutto or (nama hamu as we call it in japan) on top.  enjoy! 

ingredients:  lemon juice, grated parmesan, black pepper, coarse salt, olive oil, milk/cream, dried pasta, egg yolk.
