  • Summary

    Spaghetti alla Carbonara is one of my favourite fall-back meals when there is nothing else to eat in the fridge. All you really need is some dried pasta, cured pork, good cheese and a fresh egg to pull off a delightfully rich and satisfying meal. It’s one of those dishes where less is more, so forget about making an involved cream sauce.

    Ingredients

    • 50 gramsPecorino Romano (grated)
    • 1 largepasteurized egg
    • 2 tablespoonsolive oil
    • ground black pepper (to taste)
    • 170 gramsGuanciale (Pancetta or Bacon will also work)
    • 170 gramsspaghetti (boiled according to package directions)
    • 2 eggs slow cooked (optional)
