Add spaghetti and cook until a few minutes before al dente. Drain, reserving ¼ cup pasta water.  

In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add bacon and onion and cook until onion is caramelized and bacon is crisp, about 7-8 minutes.

In a large serving bowl, whisk together eggs, cream and Parmesan cheese. Scrape the cooked bacon and onion into the bowl along with the cooking fat.

Add spaghetti and reserved pasta water to the bowl and toss. Place a plate on top of the bowl to hold in the heat and let sit for 5 minutes. 

Remove the plate, garnish with salt, black pepper and parsley. Serve. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/12″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1584307889277{margin-top: 10px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_separator color=”black” border_width=”2″ el_width=”60″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/12″ css=”.vc_custom_1589497543296{border-radius: 5px !important;}”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”5/6″][vc_column_text]NOTES[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
