DIRECTIONS

  • Put a large saucepot of water to boil.
  • Once boiling, add a liberal amount of salt and pasta. Cook to al dente, about 8 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Add olive oil and pancetta. Brown pancetta about 2 minutes.
  • Add red pepper flakes and garlic and cook 2 to 3 minutes more.
  • Add wine and stir up all pan drippings.
  • In separate bowl, beat yolks, then add 1 large ladleful (about 1/2 cup)of the pasta cooking water. This tempers the eggs and keeps them from scrambling when added to pasta.
  • Drain pasta well and add directly to skillet with pancetta, garlic and oil.
  • Pour egg mixture over pasta. Toss rapidly to coat the pasta without cooking the egg.
  • Remove from heat and add a big handful of cheese, lots of pepper and a little salt. Continue to toss and turn pasta until soaks up egg mixture and thickens, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Serve with extra Romano.
