"A traditional way of making Spaghetti Carbonara - no cream necessary. Leave to sit for a minute and the sauce will slightly thicken. Don’t add oil to the pasta as it will coat the pasta and the sauce won’t stick."

    Turn off all heat sources once pasta is aldenté. Using tongs, place the spaghetti into the pancetta with a little of the starch water. Keep stirring and mixing until any sizzling has stopped.

  • Step 7/8

    Add the egg mix and stir into the pan until is cooks through. You can add a little more starch for a wetter sauce. Grate in more Parma and pepper to taste.
