Fresh Fettuccine with Ricotta, Spring Onions and Fried Duck EggThis is just pure decadence. Fresh basil fettuccine, creamy ricotta, crispy fried spring onions and a fried duck egg on top. The egg yolk creates a rich sauce for the noodles.. The only thing that would have made it more over-the-top is if I had some black truffle to shave on it. 
Here is a link to the Insteading.com website for more recipes and more information about cooking with duck eggs,

INGREDIENTS:1 pound fresh pasta (basil if you can find it, plain is just fine too)1 bunch spring onions (about 4), trimmed, halved lengthwise, cut into 1/4″ thick half moons1 pound fresh ricotta (Calabro is a fine brand) – remove from refrigerator when you start cooking4 duck eggs (or chicken eggs)ButterSaltPepperOptional: shaved black truffle, or truffle oil, or truffle salt
INSTRUCTIONS:Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.Saute the onions in 2 tablespoons of butter with 1/4 teaspoon of salt over medium heat until the moisture evaporates and they begin to get brown and crispy, about 15 minutes.Fry the duck eggs in butter, just like you would a chicken egg. Cover the pan so that some heat reaches the yolk as well. Ideally you get some lacy crispy bits on the edge of the whites. Cook until the white is completely set. (Note well: I like this with a still runny yolk. That is considered risky by food safety experts. You willl have to use your own judgement.)Boil the pasta until al dente. Drain and toss with butter to coat.Divide the pasta among four pre-heated bowls. Top with the ricotta, onions, and the duck egg. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. And that truffle, if using.YIELD: 4 Servings
