Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Ingredients for 4 people:

– 400 grams of pasta
– 1 egg per person plus 1 for the pot (making 5)
– 150 grams of pig’s cheek
– black pepper grains to be ground
– 1 good tablespoon of pecorino romano cheese per person (also making 5) plus more to put on the dish

We begin by putting on the water for the pasta, salt it slightly and wait until it comes to a boil. In the meantime, cut into strips, though I prefer cubes, the pig’s cheek and put it to brown in a frying pan WITHOUT oil or any other fat, until it reaches the desired crispiness and at least until the fat is not transparent. For a slightly lighter dish you can also use bacon instead of pig’s cheek, but knowing that it is not the original recipe.

In a bowl, we put the egg yolks and beat them well, then add the pecorino romano and continuing to stir with a whisk we will get a light creamy sauce. Some people put a whole egg instead of a yolk in the saucepan. You can try both versions and let us know which you prefer. Then add a good sprinkling of pepper, and finish mixing. Remove the pig’s cheek from the heat and let it cool slightly .

In the meantime, you will have cooked the pasta so drain it al dente directly into the bowl with the eggs, mixing quickly to avoid the risk of making a so-called omelette. We recommend you to use a special container and do not pour the pasta and eggs into the frying pan with the bacon because the heat of the pan may harden the egg and you won’t get the effect of a creamy sauce on top any more.

Once the pasta has been well blended pour over the pig’s cheek that you could add directly to the pasta at the stage of plating up and serving, finishing off with another sprinkling of ground pepper and grated pecorino.
