Fettuccine carbonara recipe




Serves 2

  • In a medium saucepan, add 2 litres of water. Bring to boil and add salt.
  • Add fettuccine and cook for 6 minutes until al dente.
  • Meanwhile, in a large frying pan on medium heat, cook ham with a splash of olive oil for 5 minutes until golden and crispy.
  • Add fettuccine with tongs to the pan right away while still really hot. Make sure you save some of the cooking pasta water.
  • Slowly mix in egg yolks, cream and 3 tbsp of the cooking pasta water to get a nice creamy sauce. Add pepper and cheese, toss and serve.

    Make sure you let the ham pan cool a bit, and add some pasta water, before adding the egg yolk and cream (to avoid fried egg/omlette)
