Super Yummy Pasta Dish

We've been making dinner at home all week in order to save money. I got this recipes from a 30 minute meals type book (NOT RACHEL RAY), but I modified it a little. The following recipe will feed 2 people.

6 oz. pasta (I use bow ties ><)
4 oz. bacon (Do not use turkey bacon, that was my biggest mistake)
3/4 cup. FRESH grated parmesan cheese
1 T. FRESH chopped parsley
2 Eggs

Boil the pasta until it's cooked how you like it. Before draining all the water, save about 1/4-1/3 c. of the water you used to boil it. Meanwhile, cook the bacon on your stove top in a large skillet pan or wok. Reserve a couple tablespoons of grease (this is the main problem with using turkey bacon - no grease for the sauce). In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with half of the grated cheese (save your other half). As soon as the pasta is done, add to the wok and toss until it's well mixed with the bacon. Then add the egg/cheese mixture and stir slowly until all combined. The egg will set pretty quickly. Throw into a large bowl and toss with the remaining grated cheese and parsley.
Eat immediately.

I still liked it with the turkey bacon, but it definitely would have been tastier with regular bacon. I forgot to take a picture of my version, so the one pictured is a similar one I found on the web, minus the bow ties. It actually looks really good with the angel hair, maybe I should try it that way.
