    1                    Recipe Egg Pasta (or 3/4 Lb
                         -dry fettuccine)
      1/4   lb           Bacon (about 4 slices)
    1                    Onion
      1/2   c            Parmesan cheese, grated
    3                    Eggs
                         Salt
                         Pepper
 
   PREPARATION:  Make the Egg pasta dough; roll as thin as possible and
   cut into 1/8- to 1/4-inch wide strips.  Cut the bacon into thin strips
   widthwise.  Chop the onion.  Grate the Parmesan cheese.  NOTE:
   Recipe can be made to this point several hours in advance. COOKING
   AND SERVING: Cook the bacon in frying pan over medium heat until
   golden brown, about 10 minutes.  Remove bacon and drain on paper
   towels. Reduce heat to low and cook onion in bacon fat until soft,
   about 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat and set aside.  Beat eggs
   together in a small bowl. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling,
   salted water until tender, about 3 minutes for fresh pasta. Drain the
   pasta and return to pot. Over low heat, toss pasta with the bacon,
   onion, eggs, and Parmesan cheese until pasta is well coated; heat
   until pasta is warmed through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
   Serve immediately.
