Let's Make It
Cook spaghetti as directed on package.
Meanwhile, cook bacon in large skillet 5 min. Add onions; cook 5 min. or until onions are translucent and bacon is crisp, stirring occasionally. Stir in chiles and garlic; cook 30 sec.
Drain spaghetti, reserving 1/2 cup of hot cooking water. Add hot spaghetti and reserved water to bacon mixture in skillet; mix lightly. Add eggs; cook and continuously stir on low heat 1 min. Remove from heat. Stir in cilantro; top with cheese.
Serve with fresh fruit and a side salad to round out the meal.
The heat from the drained cooked spaghetti is needed to help cook the sauce in this tasty recipe.
For best results, use a large pot of water to cook the spaghetti, and stir the spaghetti occasionally as it cooks to help prevent it from clumping together.
