Combine the Pasta and Sauce:
Quickly toss the cooked spaghetti in the skillet with the bacon drippings to coat the pasta evenly. Remove the skillet from heat. While the pasta is still hot, pour the egg and cheese mixture over it and toss quickly to combine. If the sauce is too thick, add some of the reserved pasta cooking water a little at a time until you reach the desired creamy consistency.
