Spaghetti Carbonara Recipe

350 gr pasta

4 egg yolks

150 gr smoked pancetta

2 tablespoons olive oil





Boil Spaghetti pasta in a pot of salted water. Meanwhile, in a pan fry the diced pancetta with 2 tablespoons of olive oil until slightly crispy (about 4 minutes). Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

In a glass bowl beat the egg yolks with the sheep cheese, add the pepper as desired and at the last moment (before combining them with the pasta), add the fried pancetta.

Drain the pasta and toss in the glass bowl, mixing well with the sauce prepared above.

Serve warm, sprinkling on top with a little black pepper (optional) and minced sheep cheese.

Tip: Pasta and prepared sauce should not be combined over a fire. This is because it would cause the eggs to "cook" and make them look fried.
