  1. Put 1/2 inch of olive oil in sauté pan.
  2. Add 2 cloves (or more) chopped garlic, onion and bacon cut into small squares.
  3. Let simmer 30 minutes, don't let mixture boil!
  4. During last 10 minutes of simmering add crushed red pepper flakes if using (I used 1 teaspoon).
  5. In bowl, beat 4 eggs with lots of salt and fresh ground pepper.
  6. Cook spaghetti until al dente.
