This dish was created in the Lazio region (the area around Rome) in the middle of the 20th century, after World War Two. We don’t use cream, milk, garlic, onions or other strange ingredients; we use only guanciale, eggs, pecorino cheese, and lots of black pepper (carbonaro is the Italian for coal miner). This isn’t the Italian-American version, it’s the real, creamy carbonara and it comes right from Italy, where I live. Buon appetito.
Here’s the real carbonara recipe, according to many old Italian men and nonnas.
A great carbonara is about balancing the cheese, eggs, pork, and pasta. Because there are so few ingredients, it’s important that they be high quality to make this dish a stunner. The secret is tossing beaten eggs with hot pasta off the heat so that the eggs thicken into a velvety sauce without scrambling. Eat the pasta very hot, while the sauce is still smooth and creamy.
•4-oz guanciale if you can’t find it use pancetta or slab Turkey bacon cut into thick pieces
•1/2-cup chopped onion
•1/2-tsp black cracked pepper
