The Nutcracker's Pasta Carbonara recipe


  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 pound linguine
  • 6 slices thick-cut bacon, cut into 1/4 inch strips
  • 1 large shallot, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2/3 cup freshly grated Pecorino cheese, plus extra for serving
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2/3 cup flat leaf parsley leaves


  1. Cook linguine according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, fry bacon in large skillet over medium heat, turning occasionally, until crisp, about 5 minutes. Transfer bacon with slotted spoon to a paper towel-covered plate; drain all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings.
  3. Add shallot to skillet and cook, stirring until softened, about 2 minutes.
  4. Whisk eggs, egg yolks, Pecorino, salt and pepper in medium bowl; set aside.
  5. Drain pasta, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid. Add pasta, bacon and oil to skillet mixture; toss to coat.
  6. Remove pan from heat. Add egg mixture, tossing constantly. Gradually Add enough of reserved cooking liquid, tossing until sauce is creamy.
  7. Sprinkle with parsley and extra Pecorino cheese if desired.
  8. Serve at once.


Parmesan cheese can be used in place of Pecorino
