Ingredients :

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 34 tablespoons fresh grated parmesan cheese (plus extra for sprinkling)
  • 3 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 2/3 cup cubed pancetta
  • 3 cups cooked pasta (long or short whichever you prefer)
  • hot pepper flakes to taste if desired

 

Instructions :

  • Put the oil, pancetta, and hot pepper flakes (if you’re using them) into a large frying pan and sauté them over medium heat until the pancetta is cooked through but not overly crispy.Frequently stirring the pancetta to prevent it from burning.
  • A big pot of water should be brought to a boil while the pancetta is cooking. Once the water has reached a boil, add some salt and the pasta, and continue cooking until the pasta is al dente.

  • While the pasta is cooking, beat the three eggs in a small basin. After that, add the parmesan and mix it as thoroughly as possible. When the pasta is done cooking, return the pancetta to medium high heat, add the drained pasta, and toss it together until it is thoroughly combined for about twenty to thirty seconds.
  • After that, remove the pan from the heat and add the egg mixture, tossing it constantly. Add a tablespoon or two of pasta water to ensure that it is very creamy, and continue to toss until it is thoroughly combined.
  • Parmesan cheese can be sprinkled on top if desired. Serve as soon as possible. Have fun!

  • According to the legend, the very first piece of carbonara was served in the year 1944. It would appear that the invention was the result of a combination of components that were readily available to American soldiers and the inventiveness of a Roman cook.

 

  • In other words, eggs, bacon (which would later be replaced by guanciale), and cheese were the ingredients that marked the origin of the traditional spaghetti alla carbonara.
  • As time has passed, the recipe has developed into the one that we are all familiar with and adore today.

Tip For Making The Best Carbonara :

  • A friend of mine shared an espresso with me on a Sunday morning, and it was during that time that I learnt the trick to making this spaghetti appear extra creamy.
  • She informed me that her secret was to incorporate three tablespoons of grated parmesan cheese into the mixture of beaten eggs, and she was absolutely correct in her assertion. Freshly grated parmesan cheese is of the highest quality.
  • For those who prefer pecorino, it would also be an option. Or you might use a mixture of half and half.
