This is the first video of this week, Carbonara. I love this dish, I used to eat this past frequently when I lived in a dorm in France.
Easy Spaghetti Carbonara Recipe
For 2 people
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 clove of garlic, squashed
- 2 oz slab bacon or pancetta (55g), cubed
- 7 oz spaghetti (200g)
- 2 eggs
- 2 oz parmesan cheese (55g), grated
- Freshly ground pepper
In a large mixing ball, crack in the eggs and add in grated parmesan cheese. Then whisk until combined. And set aside.
In a frying pan, add in olive oil and garlic. Over medium heat, cook the garlic.
Now I am adding the pasta in generous amount of salted boiling water. And cook until al dente according to the package directions. For me, it should be a little less than 8 minutes.
Stirring occasionally cook the garlic for 3 minutes and remove the garlic.
And add in bacon and cook for 6 minutes or until golden and crisp.
Out of heat, add the pasta directly from the pan using a pasta spoon. And stir a few times to coat the pasta. Then add the pasta into the egg-parmesan mixture and quickly mix with tongs. The sauce should thicken, not scramble. And if desired, add past cooking water to obtain the consistency of your preference.
And immediately serve on a warm dish.
Well-made carbonara should have creamy sauce. Dust with freshly ground pepper and grated parmesan on top.
