The Real Pasta alla Carbonara

This healthy Pasta alla Carbonara is not only delicious but it is the "real authentic" recipe coming straight from Italy to you !

So what are you waiting for? You should take some notes and go to your kitchen right now!

First thing first I just want to say that Italian Recipes are so damn good because we only use few quality ingredients. So, do yourself a favor, don't add more than what I write and please try to buy the right ingredients.

What will you need?

You will need...

- Spaghetti. The best pasta brand in the US is either Barilla or Garofalo.

-Then you will need a mix of eggs (use organic and local if you can), pancetta and pecorino (cheese).

If you can't find pecorino, I will get you get away with Parmigiano (parmesan) for this time!

Let's take a look at the recipe


- 400 gr spaghetti

- 200 gr pancetta

- 4 egg yolk

-50 gr grated pecorino or parmigiano

- salt and pepper


1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add the pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender yet firm (as they say in Italian "al dente.")

2. Meanwhile, cook the pancetta on a non-sticky pan and saute for about 3 minutes, until the pancetta is crispy and the fat is rendered.

3. Beat the egg yolks and Pecorino/Parmesan together in a mixing bowl, stirring well to prevent lumps. Add salt and black pepper to taste.

4. After draining spaghetti, add the egg mix and the pancetta and toss for 2 minutes. Serve while still warm. Enjoy it!
