How to Make Pasta Carbonara


  1. Place a large pot of water on and bring to a boil...When boiling put the spaghetti in.
  2. in a large saute pan/dutch oven add olive oil and when hot add the panchetta and cook until browned
  3. add 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
  4. add the grated Parmesan cheese
  5. when 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.
  6. add the pasta to the panchetta pan mix well and cook a few minutes. Remove from heat
  7. Add 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.
  8. Add a little at a time, this will help to develop a creamy sauce.
  9. Add 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
