  8. When the water is boiling, toss the pasta. We spaghetti vertically, falling sideways. And, gradually, we will be the submerging, pushing the top. But be careful because if we press very strong, we can break them.
  9. Once all pasta are submerged, stir occasionally with a wooden spoon to prevent sticking to the pot. Look at the packaging of the paste to see how long must be afoot. But do not rely entirely on what it says, because different types of pot or ceramic may cause to be made sooner or later.

The other great Italian pasta recipe is the carbonara. And we explained here:


  • 500 grams of spaghetti
  • Half cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Three whole eggs + three buds
  • 150 grams of pancetta or bacon
  • Black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Salt



  1. As the sauce in this recipe not take long to do, we can start cooking the pasta. To do so, we follow the same steps we have described above.
  2. While the pasta is cooking in the pot, we will prepare everything else. In a bowl we put the three whole eggs, yolks and three grated cheese. We beat everything with a fork and add black pepper and salt it. Reserve.
  3. In a skillet, we take a good splash of olive oil. Cut the bacon into small pieces (or bacon) and add it to the pan. Fry the meat for about 5 minutes, until we see that is done.
  4. When the paste is ready, we drain well. Now we mix the pasta with pancetta and add the beaten eggs with cheese. With the heat of the pasta and the pan off, the eggs curdling go a little. We stir everything well and serve. We can put a little parsley finely chopped. We already have our plate of pasta carbonara.

This recipe does not have much mystery and it is always like that. Perhaps you have noticed that we did not use cream to make the carbonara sauce. This is because, in true Italian cuisine, when a plate of spaghetti carbonara is made, no cream is used. The cream has been added over time by other countries. But the original recipe is made with beaten egg. Try to do it this way and see that the cream is not so important.
