Pasta Carbonara

Pasta alla Carbonara is one of our favorite signature Italian dishes. In lieu of red sauce, it's made with delicious bacon, egg, parmigiano cheese and freshly cracked black pepper. It's a great dish to make whether you're looking for a quick weeknight dinner or an impressive date night entrée. We teamed up with our Italian friend, Tommaso Sacco, to show you how it's made:

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of spaghetti - 5-7 slices of pancetta (or bacon), finely sliced - 4 eggs - 4 tbsp fresh grated parmigiano (+ more for garnish) - 4 tbsp fresh grated pecorino - Olive oil

Instructions:

1. Prepare spaghetti (or linguini) according to package 2. In a bowl, combine: eggs, parmigiano, pecorino, S + P 3. Whisk together 4. Heat 2-3 tbsp olive oil on high heat, once hot, add the pancetta & cook until golden (3-4 mins) 5. When pasta is done, strain and add to pancetta 6. Add pasta to the egg mixture (stirring quickly so that the egg doesn't cook!) 7. Top with parmigiano & fresh cracked black pepper
