Spaghetti with a creamy and lemony sauce

This dish is light in flavour, tastes summery, and extremely high in calories I should think, but very delicious. I didn't plan it but had the ingredients in, pasta, lemon, eggs and parmesan. I didn't follow a recipe, it is based on a Nigella Lawson recipe, so it's bound to be calorific. Although it doesn't look like the most exciting meal there were clean plates all around. 

Serves 4
dried spaghetti 
3 egg yolks
salt and pepper
single cream (however much you fancy)
a good handful of freshly grated parmesan
juice and zest of 1 large lemon

Cook the spaghetti as per packet instructions. Mix together the eggs yolks, parmesan, lemon juice, zest and cream and season well. When the spaghetti is cooked, drain and add the sauce coating all the strands of spaghetti in the sauce. Keep on the hob, so the egg will cook slightly. Serve with grated parmesan and some black pepper.
