Pasta with Eggs

Everyone has their basic, everday dish — something you can make after a long day at work using only the ingredients already in your kitchen. Preferably, this will be a dish that you can eat out of a bowl while watching "The Sopranos." And once your quota of violence and family feuding is up, there really shouldn't be that many dishes.

This is my dish. You can use asparagus or any number of green vegetables (or none at all) in place of the spinach, and adjust the seasoning as you like.

Pasta with Eggs
fettucine
2 eggs
some cayenne powder
some garlic powder
olive oil
spinach (optional)
2 garlic cloves, minced (optional)

Put a large pot of water to boil.

optional bit:
In a medium saucepan, heat up a tablesppon or two of olive oil, and add the garlic. Stir for a minute, then add spinach or other greens. Once the spinach has turned dark green and withered, season it with salt and pepper and place it in a bowl.

Once the water has boiled, salt well and add the fettucine.
In a medium saucepan (I use the same one I used for the spinach), add olive oil and heat over a medium-high flame. Crack two eggs into the pan and lower the heat. While the eggs cook, add spices. Do not flip the eggs over. When done, the whites will be set, the yolks still runny.

When the pasta is cooked, drain and return to the pot. Add the eggs and spinach. Toss, breaking the yolk as you do so so that the yolk forms a sauce for the pasta.

can you think of a way to do this with cheese instead of with eggs?

Like a flavored ricotta sauce or something to that effect?
