Add water to a large pot and once boiling, add the salt and linguini. Stir to loosen the strands, and cook until a la dente.
In a saucepan, add the olive oil, garlic and pancetta and cook about 4-5 minutes until the pancetta is getting crispy and then drain onto a paper towel.
In a bowl, whisk together the cheese, eggs and cream and set aside.
Once cooked, drain the pasta, and put it back into the saucepan. Do not return to heat. Working quickly, add the egg mixture to the hot pasta stirring to let the eggs cook through and the cheese to melt.
Add the pancetta; season with salt and pepper and toss all to combine.
Serve immediately into 4 bowls and sprinkle with fresh chives.
