Making carbonara is like dancing to a slow Italian tune with your stove. Though it can seem like a daunting dish, it’s all about letting the ingredients do the work for you. Just a few simple, high quality staples like our organic free range eggs go a long way: with salty guanciale, nutty Romano cheese, and a few hearty churns of the pepper mill, you’ll be left with a pan of pasta enveloped in an unbelievably creamy sauce...and no cream in sight.

By: Platings and Pairings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound spaghetti, bucatini, or rigatoni
  • 1/2 pound guanciale or bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 4 large Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs yolks
  • 2 large Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs
  • 1 cup Romano or Parmesan cheese, grated
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions

Step 1

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add your pasta of choice and cook to al dente according to instructions on the package. Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the pasta water before draining.

Step 2

In a large skillet, cook guanciale or bacon over medium heat until crisp, about 7 to 10 minutes. Drain most of the fat, leaving about 2 tablespoons in the skillet.

Step 3

In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and eggs, then gradually whisk in about 1/2 cup of the pasta water. This prevents the eggs from scrambling.

Step 4

Add the pasta to the skillet with the bacon. Pour in the egg mixture and toss well. Add in the cheese and season with salt and pepper. Continue cooking, stirring constantly, for 1-2 minutes or until the sauce has thickened up a bit and the pasta is well-coated. If sauce is too thick, add additional reserved pasta cooking water, up to 1 cup.

Step 5

Serve topped with extra cheese, if desired.

Should the pasta water still be very very hot when added to the beaten eggs?

Great question, Ainye. The pasta water will have been sitting out for a few minutes, so it will ideally be still warm to the touch but not boiling hot. We hope that answers your question!
