The Chef: Carmine Marinelli
The Restaurant: Call Me Gaby, Miami Beach
The Dish: Spaghetti Carbonara
160 g. spaghetti (follow directions on package)
3 oz. pancetta
3 medium eggs (two egg yolks, one whole egg)
1/4 cup Pecorino Romano cheese
salt, black pepper to taste
Method of Preparation:
- Cook the spaghetti by following directions on package. Meanwhile, cut pancetta into slices and then into strips of about 1 centimeter thick. Sautée for about 15 minutes on a medium flame.
- Pour the eggs in a bowl, add pecorino cheese and season with black pepper, then whisk together. Add a tablespoon of pasta cooking water to dilute the mixture and mix.
- Drain the pasta al dente directly into the pan with the pancetta and sautée briefly to flavor it. Remove from heat and pour the mixture of eggs and pecorino into the pan, and mix. If it should be too dry you can add a little cooking water.
Plate with extra garnish of pecorino and black pepper. Serve Immediately.
