A fast and easy dish made with just a few ingredients in under 20 minutes. This dish combines spaghetti, Parmesan cheese and pancetta in a creamy egg sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Anna Spaghetti
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 oz. bacon or pancetta, cubed or sliced into small strips
  • 4 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 small white onion, chopped
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • sea salt, to taste
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

Instructions

  1. In a small mixing bowl, whisk eggs with 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese, set aside.
  2. Cook pasta until Al Dente, drain and reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water.
  3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  4. Add onion to skillet and sauté until it starts to turn translucent.
  5. Add garlic and pancetta or bacon and sauté for 3 minutes until it starts to crisp.
  6. Turn off the heat to the skillet, immediately add drained pasta and toss quickly.
  7. While tossing the pasta slowly add the egg mixture - toss and fold the pasta quickly to avoid the eggs scrambling but it's very important to toss the pasta with the egg mixture before the skillet completely cools.
  8. Add reserved cheese and continue to toss, adding more pasta water for a thinner sauce, if desired.
  9. Taste pasta and add salt and pepper as needed. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
