Ingredients

  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely cracked pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound dried linguine
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/4 pound pancetta, coarsely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

Preparation

  • 1 In a large bowl, combine the eggs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, pepper and salt. Whisk to blend.
  • 2 Bring a large pot three-fourths full of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta, stir well and cook until al dente (tender but firm to the bite), about 10 minutes or according to the package instructions.
  • 3 While the pasta is cooking, combine the olive oil, butter, pancetta and garlic in a saute pan over medium heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pancetta renders some of its fat, about 3 minutes; do not let it become crisp. Keep warm over low heat.
  • 4 Using tongs, transfer the pasta, still dripping wet, to the bowl with the egg mixture. Toss immediately to coat with egg. Add the contents of the sauce. Add a little of the pasta cooking water if needed to thin the sauce. Divide among warmed dishes. Serve immediately.
  • 5 Serves 4 to 6.
