Why I Love This Recipe

When you want a simple, yet satisfying meal there is nothing better than pasta carbonara!

Ingredients You'll Need

1lb. pasta (whatever shape you like!)
1/2 onion, diced
olive oil
1/3 lb. pancetta, diced
1/2c. heavy cream or half & half
4 egg yolks
1 1/2 c. peas
1 c. parmesan cheese (plus more for finished dish)
fresh basil


Bring pot of water to a boil and cook pasta until al dente. Be sure not to overcook.

Saute onion in olive oil until soft, 5 minutes or so. Add pancetta and saute until it is nice and brown. Add peas until they are warmed through. Remove from heat and cool slightly.

In a medium bowl, whisk together cream, egg yolks, and parmesan. When onion and pancetta have cooled a bit, add to the cream and egg mixture. Stir to combine.

In your serving dish, combine warm pasta and sauce. Top with shaved parmesan and fresh basil. Enjoy - especially good with a nice crusty bread to sop up the sauce and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc!
