Spaghetti alla carbonara

Who would deny a dish of pasta? This recipe is quite heavy, but don’t worry with a long nap you’ll be ok.

Here’s the recipe:

INGREDIENTS (4 people):

  • 1 pound of spaghetti
  • pancetta or sliced bacon
  • 3 eggs
  • parmigiano
  • olive oil
  • black pepper pwder
  • salt
  • 1 onion

Chop the onion and put it in a large pan with 3 tablespoooons of olive oil. Meanwhile, dice the pancetta/bacon and when the onion is golden add the pancetta/bacon in the pan and cook it for just 5 mins.

Put the water for pasta and in a bowl, whip eggs with a fork, add salt and pepper. Grate 1/2 cup of parmigiano and add it to the eggs. “Buttare la pasta” when the water is boiling. Strain the spaghetti one minute before the cooking time, add them to the pan and pour the mix with eggs and cheese. The egg will cook a little, so you have to continue mixing. It’s up to you to choose when you think egg is enough cooked: some people prefer the carbonara a little bit less dry then others.

The dish is ready! You can add some more parmigiano, as my bf likes!
