I Shot The Chef Cooks Eggs The Spaghetti Way

According to Wikipedia, the dish, also known as "coal miner's spaghetti," began its popularity "after the Second World War, when many Italians were eating eggs and bacon supplied by troops from the United States." We wonder what kind of culinary impression the U.S. is leaving on its current crop of aid recipients and whether it will spur any new traditions.
Wikipedia says that Carbonara is "based on eggs, pecorino romano, guanciale, and black pepper." and "the eggs are added to the sauce raw, and cook (coagulate) with the heat of the pasta itself." We like the idea of using spaghetti as a cooking implement. Hey, one less thing to clean. If we could use flour tortillas to cook chicken, we'd do it all the time and maybe never leave the house.
