Spaghetti alla carbonara

The proper way to make this Italian classic.

Spaghetti, eggs, cheese and guanciale – this is the base of a traditional carbonara recipe. For a true Italian experience, it’s important to serve this pasta dish as soon as you toss the eggs through – leave it any longer, and they’ll keep cooking with the heat of the spaghetti and become scrambled.

In fact, you should probably eat this carbonara straight from the pan.

  • 400 gm dried spaghetti
  • 60 ml mild-flavoured extra-virgin olive oil (¼ cup)
  • 200 gm piece guanciale or coppa, cut into lardons (see note)
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 20 gm finely grated pecorino, plus extra to serve (¼ cup)
  • To serve: coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley (optional)
