    Here is a picture of the cast. Very easy and simple dish. First, get your water on to boil, make sure to salt the water, cook your pasta according to the package, I used whole wheat here

    Step 2

    First get the prosciutto on To crisp up and render out some fat, cooked on medium/ high heat

    Step 3

    While that's going let's chop some veg! Skin and half the onion *tip wrap the other half in a paper towel and out it in a container, it'll keep for a while in the refrigerator.

    Step 4

    dice the onion

    Peel garlic, either mince Finley or use a garlic press, I always keep my garlic press on hand.

    Step 6

    Starting to brown up

    Step 7

    Chop parsley and set aside

    Step 8

    Nice and crisp and brown, remove with a slotted spoon and set aside

    Step 9

    Same pan, if there is enough fat from the prosciutto cool, if not add a tbl spoon of olive oil, keep heat medium/high

    Step 10

    Toss the onion in and cook it out for 5 or so minutes

    Step 11

    After the 5 minutes add your garlic, here I am pressing it

    Step 12

    Add it to the garlic and stir, cook another 2-3 minutes remove from heat

    Step 13

    In the same pot you cooked your pasta in, add a few tbl spoons of olive oil, medium/ high heat

    Step 14

    Add prosciutto and onion mix, stir

    Step 15

    While that's heating up, beat eggs with parmesan cheese

    Step 18

    Once pasta mixture is hot remove from heat, add egg mix, salt and pepper and Italian seasoning stir your butt off until it's fully mixed and creamy. 3-4 minutes

    Step 19
