HOW TO MAKE SPAGHETTI CARBONARA | The Authentic Italian Recipe

Spaghetti Carbonara is a traditional Roman pasta dish. It has taken on lots of different forms over the years, but I am going to teach you the traditional spaghetti carbonara version I have been eating since I was a young boy. Using pig cheek, which is known as Guanciale, Ill help you recreate a salty al dente pasta that takes only a few minutes to prepare and will leave you begging for more – and never using cream in pasta again!

This video was filmed and edited by the Barilla team in Italy. #spon

San Francisco Glutton says:

Vincenzo, you can/should just say guanciale, especially since it is different from pork cheek! The cut for guanciale is the jowl, lower down on the pig’s face, fatty and great for curing, whereas the cheek is up higher and much better for braising in its raw state.

Saverio Loris says:

Buoni! Bello anche l’editing

yoyomax12 - the diet free zone says:

OMG This looks so good!

PumpkinsnBlackcats says:

I make mine like this but usually use panchetta or bacon since pork cheek is hard to find in my area. And I like to throw a whole garlic clove in with the meat as it cooks for a subtle flavor.

Byron Chandler says:
