Serves: 4 Prep Time: Cooking Time: Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat


  • 250g / 0,5 lb guanciale or pancetta or smoked bacon
  • 1 clove of garlic (optional)
  • 2 eggs
  • about 50g / 2 oz grated pecorino or parmesan or grana padano cheese
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 220g / 8 oz spaghetti pasta


  1. Chop the bacon into small chunks and place on cold pan. Turn on medium high heat and render the fat out. Add cracked clove of garlic and freshly ground black pepper - about 2 tsps. Give it a time.
  2. Boil pasta with tiny amount of salt. Do not drain it - you will need that water.
  3. In the meantime, prepare the eggs. Crack them into a bowl, add about 40g / 1,4 oz parmesan cheese and whisk through.
  4. When pasta is al dente and bacon is getting golden, remove garlic and turn the heat off. Drag the pasta into the pan directly from the water. Add few splashes of water to stop frying and mix ingredients. When you do not hear frying anymore, pour egg mixture in and toss quickly to cover the pasta. Add some water to achieve appropriate creamy consistency.
  5. Finish the dish on a plate with some black pepper and grated cheese.
  6. Enjoy your meal with friends or family!


Get your peppercorns in a pestle and mortar, crack it. Then use a little sieve to separate milder outer skin from hotter inside part of peppercorn. You want your carbonara to be hot from pepper. As it take its name from carbon ;)
