Wanna go to Italy and finally taste those delicious Italian dishes that the entire world is crazy about?! Here is a better, or rather said, cheaper idea- let’s bring Italy into your kitchen by learning how to prepare pasta Carbonara in the most Italian way possible. Sounds tempting?!
Well,let’s get started!
What do we need?
- 500 gr. pasta
- 7 slices of bacon
- 4 eggs
- 40 g Parmesan cheese
- Salt and black pepper
Now once we get all those ingredients, let’s start cooking step by step:
Step 1: Cut the slices of bacon into little bits and cook them. Do not remove the grease!
Step 2: Crack the eggs and stir them with a fork.
Step 3: Cook the pasta in a salted boiled water until it is soft, but not too much! Italians do not cook it too much!
Step 4: Once the pasta is cooked, pour the eggs into it and stir. Although they are uncooked, the heat of the pasta would actually cook them as well.
Step 5: Add the bits of bacon and the bacon grease to the pasta and mix it all together.
Step 6: Add salt,black pepper and Parmesan cheese per your choice.
Step 7: Serve it with a glass of fine dry Tuscan white wine and enjoy every bit of it like a true Italiano! Buon appetito!
