Spaghetti Carbonara

1 lb spaghetti

4 eggs

2 Tbs olive oil, divided

1/2 c grated Parmesan cheese

8 slices bacon

1 pinch salt and black pepper, to taste

1 onion, chopped

2 Tbs chopped fresh parsley

1 clove garlic, minced

2 Tbs grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 c dry white wine, optional

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook spaghetti pasta until al dente. Drain well. Toss with one tablespoon olive oil and set aside. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the bacon until slightly crisp, remove and drain onto paper towels. Reserve two tablespoons of bacon fat, add remaining tablespoon of olive oil, and heat in same skillet. Add the chopped onion, and cook over medium heat until onion is translucent. Add minced garlic, and cook 1 minute more. Add wine if desired, and cook another minute. Crumble bacon into bits, and return to pan, adding the cooked and drained spaghetti. Toss to coat and heat through, adding more olive oil if it seems dry or is sticking together. Beat eggs and add to the mixture, tossing constantly with tongs or a large fork until eggs are barely set. Quickly add the Parmesan cheese, continuing to toss. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately with the chopped parsley and the 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
