This classic Carbonara recipe is very rich, but oh so good. It's simple to make, yet never fails to impress.


  • 4 ounces pancetta OR 6 slices bacon, diced
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound dried spaghetti or linguine


  1. Saute the pancetta or bacon until golden brown and drain on paper towels.
  2. Combine the eggs, half the cheese, cream, salt, and pepper in a large serving bowl and beat to combine thoroughly.
  3. Cook the pasta according to the package directions until al dente.
  4. Drain and immediately add to the serving bowl, tossing to coat the pasta with the sauce.
  5. The hot pasta will cook the eggs and make the sauce thicken.
  6. If necessary, return the pasta with the sauce to the cooking pot and shake over very low heat until the sauce thickens more.
  7. Top with the cooked pancetta or bacon and the remaining cheese.
