If you look at recipes for carbonara, you'll see differing opinions on what to use. Well, I typically use 'too much' pancetta & 'too many' eggs & *gasp* I use onions. But I do NOT use cream! Nor do I use wine. We like it like this. It was based on a pasta cookbook but...well...you know how it is. ;)

How to Make *MY* Spaghetti Carbonara


  1. Heat oil in heavy skillet. Add diced pancetta.
  2. When pancetta is rendered and crispy, add onion & cook until very soft but not browned - almost caramelized.
  3. Boil past until al dente. Drain. Add beaten eggs. Stir, stir, stir, stir until thoroughly incorporated & creamy. You don't want scrambled eggs - they will be cooked enough to be safe to eat.
  4. Add pancetta & onions; stir well. Add cheese; stir well. Add pepper to taste - I like a LOT; stir well.
