Tamzin's Yummy Spaghetti Alla Carbonara

by Tamzin Wolfson

by Tamzin WolfsonViewed 10326 times


    The Italian classic dish but with the secret steps only Italians know


    1. 1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add pasta and cook it "al dente"(until tender yet firm).

    2. 2. Heat the olive oil in a deep large pan over medium flame.

    3. 3. Add the pancetta and saute for about 3 minutes, until the bacon is crisp and the fat is rendered.

    4. 4. Beat the eggs and Parmesan together in a mixing bowl, stirring well to prevent lumps.

    5. 5. Drain the pasta (reserving 1/2 cup of the starchy cooking water to use in the sauce) add the hot, drained spaghetti to the pan and toss for 2 minutes to coat the strands in the bacon fat.

    6. 6. Remove the pan from the heat and pour the egg/cheese mixture into the pasta, whisking quickly until the eggs thicken, but do not scramble (this is done off the heat to ensure this does not happen.)

    7. 7. Thin out the sauce with a bit of the reserved pasta water, until it reaches creamy consistency - this is a fundamental secret!!!!!

    8. 8. Season the carbonara with freshly ground black pepper.

    9. 9. Pass more cheese around the table and ENJOY THE MEAL!!

      I like this recipe because it is fairly simple and easy it is also cheap to make. I first made it myself.It's traditonal italian comfort food.


      1. Boil spaghetti in boiling water with salt and a drizzle of oil for 20 mins or until aldente.15 minutes later fry the bacon in olive oil and crush the garlic into the pan, cook until bacon is nice and crisp.Take the pan off the heat and hopefully by this time the pasta should be ready.Drain the pasta in a colander.Then place the drained pasta back in the pan and add the bacon with all the extra juices.Stir in well.Then pour in the beaten eggs and stir in well, try to avoid placing the pan back on the heat because the egg starts to scrambble.Then pour in cream.Add a drizzle of olive oil (optional) and parmasan cheese (optional)and place in a preheated serving bowl.Enjoy!!


      Serve with a french baguette and salad.and a glass of white Italian wine.

        I tried making this after seeing the comments and yes I would agree this is a good Carbonara - almost as good as my mum makes and she should know as she comes from the Old Country.

        Fantastic recipe I did this except used my own cheese and used chicken breast that had been left to marinate in chopped garlic and mixed herbs all day. also if you are only cooking for less people id lessen the sauce and also i wondered if anyone knew how to thicken it abit? Flour? Thanks loved it!!
