      3/4  pound         long pasta -- of choice
    2      tablespoons   chopped garlic
    2      teaspoons     salt
    2      teaspoons     white pepper
      3/4  cup           butter
      3/4  cup           diced onion
    1      cup           diced thick-sliced bacon
    1      pound         skinless boneless chicken breasts -- diced
      1/2  cup           sun-dried tomatoes
    1      cup           diced ham
    1      cup           peas -- fresh or frozen
      1/2  cup           chopped green onions
    4      cups          heavy whipping cream
    3                    egg yolks
      3/4  cup           grated parmesan cheese
 
 Cook pasta in plenty of boiling salted water until tender but firm to the
 bite, 10 to 12 minutes, or according to package directions. Drain.
 
 Saute garlic, salt and white pepper in 1/4 cup butter in skillet over
 medium-high heat until garlic is softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add onion, bacon
 and chicken and cook over medium heat until bacon is browned but not crisp
 and chicken is cooked through and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Add
 sun-dried tomatoes, ham, peas and green onions and cook, stirring, until
 heated through, about 2 minutes.
 
 Whip together cream and egg yolks and add to skillet. Stir in cheese. Cut
 remaining 1/2 cup butter into cubes and add to skillet. Cook, stirring,
 until butter melts, 1 to 2 minutes. Pour over pasta and toss.
