Wow, I certainly didn't expect so much controversy over the eggs. The recipe absolutely does NOT say to cook them. It says to "stir them in" slowly, and then remove from heat. One can't assume the spaghetti is hot if it's been sitting drained for a bit, so I don't see the assumption the eggs would be cooked. I wanted to make *sure*, so I simply let it sit on the heat a bit longer - it doesn't take long nor hurt the recipe in any way. I also stirred it a bit or they just go the bottom and cook as pieces. I disagree that the recipe says to cook them, but it's not such a big deal to just let them sit there a bit longer. Now, I also dumped the olives since I don't like them. I agree with Dreginek that I'd never consider this a "special occasion" dish, but it was good and easy. Had a curiously different taste that I wasn't sure about at first but that kind of grew on me, and I've made this twice now when I've had ham to use up.
