Traditional Spaghetti Carbonara consists of pasta, egg, hard aged Italian cheese and smoked pork (such as ham, pancetta or some other type of bacon).

I love this version just as much as the one I make with heavy cream (PK’s Spaghetti Carbonara With Cream). If you are using fresh pasta you will get a meal for the whole family in under 15 minutes.

Note: A NoRecipe is more about techniques and rough guidance than it is about exact ingredients and timing.

The Technique

A couple hundred grams of fresh spaghetti (I used bucatini made in my Philips Pasta And Noodle Maker) feeds two hungry adults.

Boil the pasta al dente and drain. Then add fried bacon, aged Italian hard cheese and whisk in an a whole egg.

I used 200g of pasta, 3 slices of short back bacon, 80g of aged Italian hard cheese (I used a mix of Calcagno Pecorino With Black Peppercorns and Parmigiano-Reggiano) and

If you like it runnier, throw a second whisked egg at it.
