spaghetti carbonara

I wrote up my spaghetti carbonara recipe for my cousin last night and though I'd post it here. It's probably non-traditional in many ways, I'd be interested in hearing how other folks cook this great dish. Enjoy.

Spaghetti Carbonara

6 eggs
1 package bacon
1 cup grated romano cheese
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 package bucatini
1 head garlic
red pepper flakes
olive oil

Boil bucatini in salted water until al dente, drain
with sieve.

Cut bacon into 1.5 inch lengths and cook until just
brown (or however you prefer it), pour off fat, and
put bacon aside on a paper towel.

Chop about 10 medium cloves of garlic into small pieces.
Scramble eggs and mix in maybe 1/3 cup milk.

Cook garlic in olive oil for maybe a minute at medium
heat (don't let it brown), add bacon and stir
together. Add bucatini and mix with bacon and garlic
(this makes a great dish stopping right here). Add
cheese, eggs, and red pepper flakes to taste, mix for
maybe a minute until eggs are cooked (this will depend
upon how hot the bucatini and the pan is). Serve.
