1 Box Spaghetti
5 Egg Yokes
4 Oz Parmesan- Shredded

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil.

Remove 1 ¼ Cup of pasta water and set aside before straining out the noodles.
While the pasta is cooking, in a large bowl combine the shredded parmesan cheese, black gold and egg yolks. Stir together until a thick paste is made.
Using a micro-plane, zest and juice the lemon and add it to the cheese mixture.
Once you have strained the pasta, add it to the bowl with the cheese mixture and begin to stir.
Add reserved pasta water ¼ cup at a time, stirring in between, until a nice creamy sauce is made.
