1. Cook the linguine in boiling salted water in a large kettle. Drain.
2. Brown the bacon and garlic in a small skillet.
3. Beat together the eggs, salt, if you wish, and the pepper in a bowl until frothy.
4. Return the drained pasta to the kettle. Add the bacon, 2 tablespoons of bacon fat and the egg mixture. Toss the mixture over low heat with 2 forks until thickened, about 3 minutes; don't let the eggs scramble.
5. Sprinkle with the cheese and the parsley. Toss again to coat evenly.
