Spaghetti Carbonara with Asparagus

Spaghetti Carbonara with Asparagus
Is there anything that doesn't taste better when added to carbonara? There were gorgeous asparagus stalks at the market and I knew they were destined for a big plate of carbonara. Miss F refers to them as "celeragus," I have no clue where she got that, but at least she eats them!  I love how quickly carbonara comes together and it tastes like you have been working in the kitchen all day.  I also like that it is a one dish meal, you cannot get any easier than that. 
Spaghetti Carbonara with Asparagus

6 slices bacon, cut into lardons
1 pound asparagus, cut into 1" pieces
3 egg yolks
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ cup cream

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 8 to 12 minutes; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Drain all but one tablespoon grease from the skillet. Saute the asparagus for 3 to 5 minutes.

Prepare the spaghetti per package instructions.

Meanwhile, in a two cup measure, whisk together the eggs, Parmesan and cream. Drain the spaghetti and add it to the pan with the asparagus. Pour the egg mixture overtop and toss well to coat. Stir in the bacon and serve.
