This classic is a revamped version of an old Bon Appetite favorite of mine. I made this in less than 30 minutes using what I had on hand. I defy you to find a better carbonara in a restaurant. Go ahead and try
This dish was made using my new Swiss Diamond 4.3 qt (11 in) Sauté Pan with Lid. Swiss Diamond products provide healthy cooking along with easy clean-up perfectly suited for busy moms like me! I mean-I made these fried eggs (that did NOT stick to the pan) and I added NO oil! The patented coating is reinforced with real diamond particles in order to create a durable, naturally nonstick surface with superior heat conduction. I’m not using any metal utensils though. I just can’t no matter what they say about durability. I don’t want to take a chance! It can be used with no oil and cleans up with just warm soapy water – no scrubbing and soaking necessary! Additionally, the cookware is oven safe for up to 500 degrees which allows meals to be completed in just one pan. Perfect for when I want to pop something in the oven to finish up!
I have used mine to make caramel, risotto, 2 different tomato sauces and a custard base! Can you tell I love it?
Linguine Carbonara With A Fried Egg
8 large eggs
2/3 C grated Parmesan cheese
2/3 C grated Pecorino Romano cheese
2 cloves garlic, minced
pinch of fresh pepper/kosher salt
8 oz of diced Pancetta, or good bacon
16 oz of linguine or fettuccini
1-1 1/2 C pasta water
Whisk 4 eggs, both cheeses garlic and salt/pepper in a small bowl.
Cook pancetta in a large skillet until crisp and brown.
Using a slotted spoon transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
Reserve the skillet with drippings.
Cook pasta in salted water until just al dente.
Drain pasta reserving about 2 C of water.
Return pasta to pot and add the egg cheese mixture and pancetta.
Add pasta water, 1/4 C at a time, and toss to coat.
Add more liquid, if needed to get the consistency you like.
You want the pasta coated and the sauce to NOT be thick.
This happens quickly.
Taste and season.
In the skillet, fry each egg in the drippings until cooked through.
Plate the pasta and place 1 egg on top of each pasta bundle.
This serves 4 for a main dish but you can also stretch this and make heartier sides.
Like all reviews~ my opinions are my own. If you could SEE the scary cookware I use right now you would understand why I am absolutely in love with my new Swiss Diamond pan!
