Carbonara Spaghetti

This recipe came from a friend who served in Italy... Its definitely not the healthiest thing ever, but that's probably why its so good! There are no real measurements for it, add more or less to your own taste!

- 1 medium onion
- 1 clove of Garlic
- Basil
- Half of a normal sized package of thick sliced bacon
- E.V.O.O.
- Salt
- Black Pepper
- Crushed red peppers (only use if you want it spicy)
- 3 eggs
- 1 lb of spaghetti (I prefer Barilla brand)
- A generous amount of Parmiggiano Reggiano cheese

Chop bacon into small pecies. Set aside
Crack eggs and put in a small bowl, beat and add the cheese. Set aside

Prepare water for the pasta and cook the spaghetti until it reaches an "al dente" texture, make sure to add a ton of salt to the water (sea salt is best for this) I usually add a handful of salt or two depending on how much water is in the pot.

 Chop onion and garlic and begin to fry in a generous amount of olive oil add crushed red peppers (again optional) once onion starts to soften and turn yellow add bacon and sprinkle liberally with black pepper and Basil. once bacon is cooked allow to simmer on low heat.

Once noodles are cooked strain water and add bacon and onions and eggs, stir immediately and then cover and allow the noodles to cook the eggs. Serves 4
