To Die for Spaghetti Carbonara by Tom Cruise

good first cold press extra virgin olive oil, 1/2 inch in large saute pan (Don't skimp on oil quality!)
2 garlic cloves, minced, to taste
1 chopped onion, to taste
8 -12 slices pancetta, thick slices (Italian bacon)
4 eggs
2 (16 ounce) packages spaghetti (use your good judgement on quanity, we eat alot!..you may not!)
2 cups fresh grated parmesan cheese (Again, don't skimp on quality!) or 2 cups parmigiano-reggiano cheese (Again, don't skimp on quality!)
crushed red pepper flakes
salt & fresh ground pepper


Put 1/2 inch of olive oil in saute pan. Add 2 cloves (or more) chopped garlic, onion and bacon cut into small squares. Let simmer 30 minutes, don't let mixture boil! During last 10 minutes of simmering add crushed red pepper flakes if using (I used 1 teaspoon). In bowl, beat 4 eggs with lots of salt and fresh ground pepper. Cook spaghetti until al dente. Drain and immediately add egg mixture to pasta. (The pasta needs to be real hot in order for the eggs to cook). Stir until eggs are cooked. Mix into saute pan and finish with the grated cheese. ENJOY!
