1 chopped medium onion
1Tbs butter
C chicken broth
1/8 tsp salt
t black pepper
2 eggs lightly beaten
1 pkg shredded parmesan cheese.

In a very large skillet (big enough to hold ALL ingredients), cook bacon until crisp. Discard the drippings (no need to clean or wipe pan out) and add olive oil. Add the onion and cook about 5 minutes. Add butter, broth, salt and pepper. Heat through but do not let it boil (about 2 minutes). Remove from heat. Drain
pasta and add it to the sauce in the skillet. Add beaten eggs (hot pasta will cook the eggs) and shredded
parmesan and toss quickly. Continue tossing until sauce thickens slightly. Add crumbled bacon and parsley
to garnish.
