Fettuccini Carbonara

How to make Fettuccini Carbonara.

Ingredients: Serves 4

  • 400 g fettuccine
  • 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • 100 g pancetta or bacon (chopped)
  • 3 eggs (beaten)
  • 100 g parmesan cheese
  • extra virgin olive oil


  1. Prepare all ingredients before you begin, then bring a large saucepan of water to the boil.
  2. Add a pinch of salt to the water, then add fettuccine.
  3. Cook until al dente.
  4. While the pasta cooks, heat the oil in a large frying pan and cook the garlic and pancetta (or bacon) until the meat starts to get crispy.
  5. Reduce the heat, then strain the fettuccine (saving the water) and add the cooked pasta to the pan.
  6. Add a little of the pasta water.
  7. Mix most of the Parmesan with the beaten eggs, removed the pan from the heat and quickly add the egg mixture.
  8. Use tongs to combine the pasta and egg as it cooks.
  9. You want the egg to get thick without getting it scrambled.
  10. Add more pasta water if you need it to be ‘wetter’.
  11. Season with salt and pepper as desired.
  12. Serve and enjoy!
