Pasta Carbonara

I got this from a good friend and it is SUPER yummy!


1 box pasta
1 med yellow onion, or half big onion, or the whole dang thing if you love
olive oil
about 1 cup of cubed ham- i just buy it pre cut
between 1-2 cups of peas
3-5 eggs (usually one per person or so, i usually do 4)
1 bottle of alfredo sauce (i usually get the kind with extra parmagianno)
pepper, salt, basil

so, fry up the onions in the olive oil.  when the onions are almost done
toss in the ham and peas and just heat that up.  at the same time get the
pasta boiled and ready.  when the pasta is done leave the oven on but turn
it down to to a medium (or med-low) heat, drain the water in a colonder then
toss the pasta back into the pot and put it back on the stove.  once on the
stove crack all the eggs in and start stirring the pasta and eggs around
until the eggs are cooked a bit (it'll look like scrambled eggs). then get
the pasta off the heat, dump in the peas-onion-ham stuff then the bottle of
alfredo.  after that put some pepper and basil and salt to taste.
