Well, here's our modified version:

1/3 # diced Sizzlean*(I know, trust me)
1/2 c grated _fresh_ parmesan
2 eggs
2 T butter
1 T olive oil
1 clove crushed garlic
fresh ground pepper

Start your water boiling for the pasta. Melt the butter in the olive
oil and add the garlic and Sizzlean. Cook but don't brown your garlic or 
bacon-stuff. Grate the parmesan. Beat together the eggs, 1/4 cup
parmesan and pepper. When the pasta is done, drain and immediately
toss in the egg mixture. (The heat of the pasta cooks the eggs as
it coats the pasta.) Drain about 1/2 of the liquid from the
bacon-stuff/garlic and add the rest to the pasta with the rest
of the parmesan, toss again. Serve with more fresh ground pepper.

This is probably enough for 4 so measure your pasta accordingly.

*The sizzlean tastes more like ham than bacon, so if you want you
 can use ham.

Quick and easy. Enjoy,
