Recipe: 15- Minute Meal Pasta Carbonara


- pound spaghetti

- 2 large egg yolks

- 1/2 cup heavy cream

- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

- 6 ounces thickly sliced pancetta or bacon, cut into 1/8-inch dice

- 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

- 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (3 ounces), plus more for serving

- Freshly ground pepper  



  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the spaghetti until just al dente. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the egg yolks and cream. In a large, deep skillet, heat the oil. Add the pancetta or bacon and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until crisp, 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until golden, 1 minute.
  3. Add the spaghetti to the skillet. Cook over low heat, tossing, until coated. Slowly add the reserved pasta cooking water and beaten egg yolks. Toss until coated with a creamy sauce, about 1 minute. Add the 1 cup of Parmesan and season with pepper. Transfer to bowls and serve, passing extra Parmesan.
