Pasta Carbonara originated in Rome, and people often assume that this dish should be made with cream, however this isn’t the authentic way to cook it.

The only ingredients should be guanciale or pancetta (bacon is fine), egg yolk, garlic, parmesan cheese and black pepper. The sauce is very quick to prepare, making this a simple dish for everyone to make.

Maurizio and Sienna will be cooking the dish live on our Facebook page this Thursday at 12pm and you’ll be able to cook along with them, you’ll just need the following ingredients…

200g pasta
150g pancetta or bacon
Olive Oil

2 eggs

If you fancy making Tagliatelle fresh you’ll need…

200g flour
2 eggs
