To ensure your eggs don't separate, warm them to room temperature before you use them. I also take a further step by warming a large bowl that I use to whisk the eggs, cheese, and pepper together. To warm the empty bowl, simply set it over your pasta pot as the water is boiling. You want the bowl very warm, but not so hot that the eggs will cook.
A great tip when cooking pasta dishes such as this one is to reserve a small cup of the pasta water before draining. When mixing the sauce with the pasta, you can always loosen the sauce with a few teaspoons of the water if it starts to look to thick.
1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a roiling boil for the pasta. In a large frying pan, heat the oil until lightly smoking over medium heat, then cook the guanciale or pancetta until cripsy, about 6 minutes. Keep warm.
2. Drop the pasta into the water and cook until "al dente" according to the package instructions. As the pasta is cooking, warm a large serving bowl. Place the egg yolks in the bowl along with three quarters of the cheese mixture along with the ground pepper. Use a whisk and blend until well mixed.
3. Drain the pasta, reserving a small cup of the past water. add the drained, steaming hot pasta into the bowl with the eggs, along with a little of the pasta water, toss well to lightly cook the eggs and coat the pasta with the egg mixture. Add the warm guanciale or pancetta, and toss again to mix well. serve the past in individual bowls with a sprinkling of the parsley and the remainder of the cheese.
