Penne al Arrabiata
Baked Spaghetti


Carbonora (for 4)


  • 1lb dried pasta or double batch of pasta fresh from Phillips pasta maker (I prefer linguini)
  • 1/4 Lb Guanciale (1/4" cubes) - can use pancetta if can't find guanciale
  • 3 egg yolks + 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup grated parmigano Reggiano
  • 1/2 cup grated Recorino Romano
  • lots of fresh ground black pepper


  1. Cold 12" skillet or 8" saucier render pork
  2. Boil & salt pasta water
  3. Heat serving bowls/plates
  4. In Bowl combine egg yolks, egg, cheese, and pepper - whisk to combine.
  5. When pork is cooked remove from heat, let cool slightly
  6. cook pasta
  7. Mix pork & pork fat into egg & Cheese mixture (in the bowl)
  8. Drain pasta and retain 1/2 cup of pasta water
  9. Add sauce to saucier/skillet - Add pasta, slowly add couple Tablespoons pasta water a bit at a time and mix, cheese mixture, pasta, and water vigorously until emulsified- add add pasta water as needed - sauce will thicken as cools, so should appear a bit thin in the pan
