This is a serve-straightaway recipe. As soon as you mix the eggs into the pasta, the dish needs serving, otherwise the sauce will be absorbed and the dish will be dry. Prepare the onion and bacon mix beforehand and heat through in a frying pan when ready to toss through the pasta.
Try it next time with peas mixed in. Add 100g frozen peas to the frying pan with the onions and bacon and cook for 3-4 minutes. Put the peas into the pan while frozen, as the ice will allow them to heat up gently without frying.
You can vary the cheese: add some grated pecorino romano or pieces of mozzarella or ricotta.
