Classic Spaghetti Carbonara Recipe

There are many cooking options for spaghetti alla carbonara. Try to cook the most classic version of this dish. Let's see what ingredients we need for cooking spaghetti alla carbonara for 4 people:
  • 360 grams of spaghetti;
  • 250 grams of guanchale;
  • Pecorino Romano cheese;
  • 5 eggs;
  • Black pepper peas;
  • Olive oil (only if you use bacon, not guanchale).
Guanchale looks like bacon, but that’s a completely different thing. This is pork cheek, it has more fat, so you do not need to use oil. If you have not found guanchale, you can use bacon. Then you will need to add a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Pecorino Romano is sheep’s cheese. It tastes very salty and satisfying. If you have not found pecorino romano, you can use parmesan. First you need to clean the guanchal from the skin, then cut it into pieces. Let's start making the sauce. We will need eggs and cheese. How many eggs and cheese do you need for the sauce? 2-4 persons:
  • 1 whole egg;
  • 1 yolk and 2 tablespoons of cheese per person.
Example: serving for 4 people - 1 whole egg + 4 yolks + 8 tablespoons of cheese. 5-8 persons:
  • 2 whole eggs;
  • 1 yolk and 2 tablespoons of cheese per person.
Example: serving for 8 people - 2 whole eggs + 8 yolks + 16 tablespoons of cheese. Serving of pasta per 1 person = 90-100 grams. Beat the eggs with a fork, add a lot of pepper and no cream! Add cheese, mix - the sauce is ready. Put the water on a strong fire. Now we will cook the guanchal over medium heat. No onions need to be added! Cook the guanchal until it is a little crispy. Guanchale is ready, look how much fat came from it. Meanwhile, the water was already boiling. Add one tablespoon of salt and paste to the water. Never add oil! To prepare the paste, it will take about 10-11 minutes. The pasta is ready. Drain the pasta through a colander. Never wash the pasta! Now add the pasta to the frying pan with the finished guanchal and hold it a little over medium heat, stirring occasionally. This procedure is needed to make the pasta even tastier, the Italians say: "Mantecare". Now add the sauce. No fire, because we don’t want to eat scrambled eggs! Stir the pasta so that it is saturated with the sauce. Real Italian carbonara is ready. It remains to lay the paste on a plate with a slide, decorating the top with crispy guanchal.
