A delicious Italian dish that is so simple to make at home!
3 egg yolks
2/3 cup, grated parmesan
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
115gm (4oz), sliced bacon (sub for guanciale or pancetta)
450gm (1lb) spaghetti
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, cheese, salt and pepper. Set aside.
In a deep pan, heat the olive oil and sear the meat until crispy on the outside. Do not overcook or the meat will get hard and tough!
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta until al dente. Strain and reserve one cup of the pasta water.
Place the hot pasta in a large warmed bowl and pour the egg mix over the top. Toss together, adding some of the reserved pasta cooking water if needed for extra creaminess. Once the mix is combined and the sauce has thickened slightly from the egg cooking, add the meat.
Serve while hot with extra cheese grated over the top.
