Eggs, pancetta, and freshly ground pepper give this dish its intense taste. Spaghetti alla carbonara is one of the most famous Italian recipes worldwide.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
Cook pancetta in skillet, over medium heat, 5 to 6 minutes or until golden brown and crisp, stirring frequently. Add olive oil.
Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and return to pot.
Stir pasta into bacon mixture and cook over medium heat for 1 minute.
Add eggs and cook 1 to 2 minutes until eggs are cooked, stirring constantly. Toss gently with cheese. Season to taste with black pepper. Transfer to serving platter
nikitimpson 1y agoCooked this tonight for my 10 year old. I didn't have the Romano cheese so used cheddar and mozzarella, but it came out a little bland. I added tons of black pepper, and ate mine, but my 10 year old likes his carbonara with the creamy carbonara sauce, so I think I'll have to look up another type of carbonara (are there different ways of cooking it?) This was OK, nice and simple to cook, fine for folks who don't like their pasta swamped by sauces... but not tasty enough for 5 stars I'm afraid.
DebbieRTodd 4y agoExcellent. I added an onion and white mushrooms with the pancetta. This recipe is for purists!
