So you’re in the mood for pasta but don’t want a big production? Though a simple recipe, Carbonara delivers great flavor and comfort with a minimum of effort. Pick up some guanciale (a.k.a. dry-cured pork jowl) at your local specialty market, then cook it in olive oil until browned and crispy, then boil up a pot of spaghetti. When pasta has cooled slightly, toss with a mixture of eggs, Pecorino Romano cheese and freshly cracked black pepper. Toss with the crispy pork and get busy twirling up forkfuls of delicious pasta!
