    In a large pot boil water for the pasta on a high heat. Chop the bacon into small pieces and dice the onion and garlic, set aside.
  • STEP 2
    Put the pasta into the boiling water and leave at a high heat.Put a tsp of olive oil into a large frying pan (at medium heat), once heated add the diced bacon and allow to gently fry. In a large bowl crack the two eggs and whisk.
  • STEP 3
    Add the diced red onions and garlic to the frying pan with the garlic and allow to brown, once bacon is cooked and the vegetables slightly brown turn down (to low heat) to keep warm. In the bowl with the eggs fold in the parmesan and add the white wine.
