Food: Pasta Carbonara The Easy Way

Pasta Carbonara, by far, is my favorite pasta dish. But I’ve always been a bit intimidated in making it at home for fear of not setting the eggy sauce correctly. So, every chance I get, while in a traditional Italian restaurant in San Francisco, or Italy 😉 – I order the dish – leaving the bountiful flavors in the hands of the chef.

But, in light of our situation, and my fear of order take-out right now, I am attempting to make this dish for our Friday night dinner following this easy recipe.

Ingredients and Step-by-Step: Go here 
  • 3 Tbsp. kosher salt, plus more
  • 4 oz. guanciale (salt-cured pork jowl), pancetta (Italian bacon), or bacon
  • 2 oz. Parmesan
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2 large eggs
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb. spaghetti, bucatini, or rigatoni  {more}  - step-by-step video
