1 Comment » Mar 2nd, 2011 | By | Category: Pasta & Gnocchi, Recipes

Spaghetti Carbonara is, besides the Aglio e Olio recipe, probably the most simple and easy to do pasta recipe. The only requirements are fresh, organic free range eggs and speck. Make sure you don’t use regular bacon but speck which has less fat and more taste.

Preparation time: 20 minutes

difficulty: easy

Ingredients for 2 servings:

  • Spaghetti
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 fresh organic free range eggs
  • 1 small onion
  • 100 gram of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 50 gram of speck
  • salt and pepper
  • etwas Olivenöl


Bring water to boil, salt lightly and cook pasta al dente.

Dice the onions and fry them in a pan with some olive oil. Once the onions take on some color you can add the cubed speck. let it simmer for a couple of minutes then add the chopped garlic. Fry for a minute then remove from the heat.

Scramble the eggs in a bowl, adding a fair amount of fresh ground pepper and the grated cheese.

Put the drained pasta into the pan. Mix well with the bacon and pour the egg sauce over the pasta. Mix the pasta until you get a creamy sauce and let it sit for a minute. Season to taste with salt and pepper and mix again. Then serve immediately.
