Spaghetti with garlic, feta and bacon

This dish is one of my favourite. It is a bit like a carbonara, but varies a lot because of the feta and the dry style of the pasta itself.
I had that on a vacation near the Swiss boarder many years ago and I still make it the way and enjoy it a lot.
my favourite dish

250 g spaghetti
8-10 cloves of garlic
2 spring onions
150 g feta cheese from sheep and goats milk
2 eggs
150 g smoked bacon cubes
3 tbsp pasta water
1 tbsp chives
just a few ingredients

chuck the bacon in a large pan and start to fry it off until it turns brown. Degrease it a bit and get in with the chopped onions and garlic. Take down the heat and saute the onions and garlic. Add the crumbled cheese and start to melt it.

use a good feta

Cook the pasta in salted water and drain it, keep a bit of water and add that to the bacon pan.
When the cheese is melted, add the pasta with the water and stir 2 beaten eggs in.
Crank up the heat and make something like fried egg pasta. It should be fairly dry.
