So, to make this easy carbonara pasta you’ll need flour and eggs, pasta essentials, of course.
If you never made pasta dough before, the best way to do so is to make a mountain from the flour and pour the eggs in the middle, letting them sink in slowly and folding them inside the flour, instead of just mixing it all in a bowl.
Make a ball and let it cool in a fridge for about thirty minutes.
When the flour and eggs are mixed together nicely, roll the dough into a ball
Now spread the mass over the table and then roll it.
This little trick will help you create long pasta noodles without having to cut them individually.
Now you should cut the rolled mass as you see pictured.
Easy right? Takes a minute to make lots of pasta strings
And there you go… fresh homemade tagliatelle!
My favorite type of pasta is Tagliatelle or Fettuccine.
We are ready to move on to the authentic traditional Carbonara components:
- cured pork cheek (you can use pancetta, too)
Make sure you have a good pepper mill…mix one egg, one yolk, cheese and pepper.
It should look like the picture below.
It’s pancetta time!
Now boil the tagliatelle for 1.5 minutes and then mix everything on top of the boiling water, using it as a double boiler so the eggs won’t scramble.
What you’ll get at the end of this carbonara recipe is this.
A bit closer look …Yum, Yum… Have a nice meal!
