spaghetti alla carbonara

Preparation Time: ~25 Minutes
Cookery Level: Easy

Ingredients for 4 people

  • 400g spaghetti
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 150g bacon
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 glass of dry white wine
  • 100g grated Pecorino Romano or Grana Padano cheese
  • 1 clove of garlic

Dice the bacon and place in a small frying pan to brown with the extra virgin olive oil and the clove of garlic. When the bacon has changed colour slightly pour the wine into the pan and allow to evaporate slowly. Beat the eggs in a bowl as if for an omelette and mix with the Grana Padano or the Pecorino Romano cheese as preferred and the pepper.

Cook the spaghetti in plenty of boiling salted water, drain and pour at once into the bowl with the egg mixture. Mix well, add the re-heated bacon mixture and serve at once.
