Cook bacon, onion, and garlic
Pour a quarter-inch of olive oil into a frying pan and add the onion, garlic, and bacon or pancetta. Cook over medium heat until the bacon is crisp -- eight to12 minutes.
Add pasta to a large pot of boiling, salted water. Boil five to seven minutes.
Whisk the eggs in a small bowl while the pasta is cooking. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Add eggs to pasta
Drain the pasta and return it to the pot. Add the beaten eggs and stir until thoroughly mixed. The heat from the pasta cooks the eggs.
Combine pasta and bacon mixture
Add the bacon mixture to the pasta and toss.
Mix in the parmesan cheese.
Enjoy this scrumptious dish -- perhaps with a glass of wine.
