  • Instructions

    1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti until al dente, then drain and reserve 1 cup of pasta water.
    2. While the pasta cooks, heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add diced pancetta and cook until crisp, about 5-7 minutes.
    3. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, grated parmesan cheese, and black pepper until well combined.
    4. Once the pancetta is crisp, remove from heat and add the cooked spaghetti to the skillet. Toss to combine.
    5. Pour the egg mixture over the spaghetti and pancetta, stirring constantly to create a creamy sauce. If the mixture seems too thick, add some of the reserved pasta water to thin it out.
    6. Serve immediately, topped with additional grated parmesan cheese and black pepper to taste.
