Home made carbonara….. Really!!!!

Carbonara sauce- home made (you need only eggs and cheese)!

How many of you buy your pasta sauce?
Honest confession – have always bought pasta sauce rather than make it fresh…. Eeks, I how I don’t get kicked out of this group!

Yesterday, Varun taught me how to make easy sauce at home with just eggs and cheese.

Fry pancetta and keep aside.

Boil tagliatelle , reserve a ladle of pasta water.

Add oil to it, add whisked eggs (2eggs and 2 yolks) and a generous fistful of cheese ( usually parmesan, I added gruyere as we had run out of parmesan, typical!!), salt, pepper.

Whisk it into the hot tagliatelle , turning well all the time till you get a creamy consistency. Add cream to get the right form, if needed.

You will never go back to the store sauce ever.
