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.
