Ingredients:  
1 pound spaghetti
1/4 to 1/2 pound thickly sliced good quality bacon
2 cloves garlic, peeled
2 large eggs
Black Pepper
1/2 c grated Parmigiano cheese

Directions:
Directions:
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. When it is boiling, throw the spaghetti in. Most dried spaghetti takes 9 to 10 minutes, you can make the sauce in that time. Cut the bacon crosswise into pieces about 1/2 inch wide. Put them in a skillet and cook for 2 minutes until fat begins to render. Add the whole cloves of garlic and cook another 5 minutes, until the edges of the the bacon just begin to get crisp. Do not overcook; if they get to crisp they won't meld with the pasta. Meanwhile, break the eggs into the bowl you will serve the pasta in,and beat them with a fork. Add some grindings of pepper. Remove the garlic from the bacon pan. Drain the pasta and immediately throw it into the beaten eggs. Mix thoroughly. The heat of the spaghetti will cook the eggs and turn them into a sauce. Add the bacon with its fat, toss again, add the cheese and serve.
