Spaghetti alla carbonara


The traditional italian recipe of carbonara pasta from Italy.. because travelling abroad I’ve seen a lot of confusion about it 🙂

For 3 people, you will need:

300 g of spaghetti

2 eggs

100-150 g of chopped into cubes pancetta (sweet or smoked, it’s up to your taste)

ground pepper, ground nutmeg, salt

That’s all!

Put a big pot with salty water over the flame and let it boil to cook the spaghetti. Meanwhile, whisk 2 eggs in a bowl and add salt, pepper and nutmeg. In a little pan, cook the pancetta. Put the spaghetti into the pot, cook it “al dente”. When cooked , strain and, suddenly, put them in a pan with the eggs and the pancetta, strained from its fat. Mix over the flame, and when the eggs are cooked, move away. Serve immediately. Advice: test with grated parmesan, as we do almost everyday with our pasta 🙂
