The Pasta Sauce Series - Carbonara Sauce

The Pasta Sauce Series - Carbonara Sauce

I have started a small series on my YouTube channel on pasta sauces. From my own experience with making sauces, I wanted to dig deeper into the authentic sauces from Italy. What I discovered is really the fundamental rule most Italians use when making sauces that quality ingredients, and patience make the best sauces.
This 4 part video series concentrates on the “ mother” sauces that don’t take a lot of time to make, yet deliver on flavor..

The Carbonara Sauce

The first sauce is perfect with spaghetti and with a few ingredients you get a creamy delicate sauce with out the use of dairy.

prep time: cook time: total time:

A sauce that is creamy, but does not use cream. Eggs and cheese help make this a smooth, tastey sauce.

ingredients:

  • 3 strips thick bacon
  • 1 1/2 TBL grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 1/2 TBL Pecorino Cheese
  • 1 tsp crushed black pepper

instructions:

  1. Get the spaghetti on the boil in lightly salted water.
  2. Cube the bacon into 1/4 Inch pieces
  3. add bacon to the cold frying pan and bring up the heat to medium-high. This helps to render the bacon faster.

  5. Grind peppercorns, and sift to remove outer husks
  6. Crush the garlic clove and add to frying bacon
  7. In a bowl add 1 egg and the yolk of the second.
  8. Add cheese to eggs, and mix up to incorporate fully.
  9. When bacon is rendered, turn off heat and let sit for a minute or so to cool down
  10. Add cooked pasta to frying pan, constantly stirring to reduce heat and add a little pasta water to prevent drying out.
  11. Once frying sound has stopped, stir to begin emulsification of oil and water, then add eggs and cheese.
  12. If it looks thick add a little water from pasta
  13. When sauce looks like a cream sauce and is smooth, plate and serve with some grated cheese over top and add the pepper.
