Simple Italian Pasta Sauce - Spaghetti all Carbonara
Here is one of Chef Guido's simple traditional Roman Pasta Sauces for you to try.
Make sure you eat is piping hot!
Guido's Spaghetti alla Carbonara
Spaghetti alla Carbonara - Serves 6:
Ingredients: 500 gm of dried spaghetti, 50g of guanciale, 50 g of pecorino romano, black pepper, 4 eggs, extra virgin olive oil.
First: put a large pot of salted water onto the stove to boil.
Tip: This sauce is very quick, and when ready needs to be stirred into the cooked 'aldente' spaghetti and served immediately.
Method: Cut the guanciale into short sticks. Put a little olive oil in a pan and fry guanciale until crispy. Whisk the eggs in a bowl with pecorino cheese, black pepper and a pinch of salt. When pasta is cooked, drain the pasta, put it back in the hot pot and mix all the ingredients until the eggs acquire a creamy consistency, without scrambling. Serve with extra pepper on top.
(Pasta shapes traditionally used for Carbonara Sauce are: spaghetti or rigatoni). Find out more about Convivio Rome's:
