How to Make Pasta Carbonara


  • 1Place a large pot of water on and bring to a boil...When boiling put the spaghetti in.
  • 2in a large saute pan/dutch oven add olive oil and when hot add the panchetta and cook until browned
  • 3add the minced garlic and cook a few minutes. Remove from heat until pasta is cooked. In the mean time, crack the eggs in a bowl and beat
  • 4add the grated Parmesan cheese
  • 5when about to drain the pasta, return the panchetta and garlic to the heat. add a bit more olive oil if needed. you want enough to coat the pasta.
  • 6add the pasta to the panchetta pan mix well and cook a few minutes. Remove from heat
  • 7Add the egg and cheese mixture to the pan and mix quickly and well. At this point you will probably need to add some pasta water.
  • 8Add a little at a time, this will help to develop a creamy sauce.
  • 9Add the parsley here, or I wait and add it on the individual dish cause one some doesn't like it. Add more cheese and serve! yum
