Sift flour and salt together onto the bench, into a mound.
Make a well, add in eggs, use your fingertips to blend together, drawing the flour from the outside, until it is a dough.
Knead dough firmly for 7 minutes until elastic, then divide into 4 portions. Let the dough rest for 10minutes.
Using a pasta machine, pass through dough until smooth making 1-1.5mm thick. It could take up to 6 times to do this. Once finished, lay the sheet down and cut it into strips 4mm wide.
Cook immediately - until al dente. Drain and add 3 tbsp olive oil.
In a fry pan, add butter, garlic, and bacon, cook for 3 minutes. Add in asparagus and cook for 4 minutes.
In a separate pot, bring water and vinegar to the boil, then reduce to medium heat. Stir the water to make a whirlpool, then slide in egg, cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat. Divide pasta and toppings between 4 bowls, then finish with the egg, salt, pepper and shaved parmesan.
