Coarsely chop the bacon and fry until almost crispy. (Add some garlic, if you like.)
Beat the eggs in a bowl. Add the Parmesan cheese and black pepper, and mix well.
Add the cooked spaghetti to the beaten egg, and stir quickly. (Some egg will get lumpy due to the residual heat of the pasta.)
Add bacon, mix, then serve.
Sprinkle with some black pepper, and enjoy.
Story Behind this Recipe
This is the first pasta I learned to make in Italy.
Black pepper is important! When you cook one serving, it's easiest to put the eggs in a deep serving dish, then add the cooked pasta and mix. Adjust the amount of cheese and black pepper to suit your taste.
