IngredientsServes: 2

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 200 g (7 oz) dried tagliatelle
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 50 g (1¾ oz) rindless streaky smoked bacon
  • 2 tablespoons single cream
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley

MethodPrep:10min ›Cook:20min ›Ready in:30min

  1. Cook the garlic, shallot and wine in a nonstick saucepan over a high heat for 2-3 minutes until the wine has evaporated.
  2. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil, add the pasta and a pinch of salt and cook according to the instructions on the packet.
  3. Meanwhile, cut the bacon into thin strips and add it to the shallot mixture. Sauté over a high heat for 2-3 minutes until the bacon has cooked through and is crisp.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the cream, eggs, Parmesan and parsley and season to taste.
  5. Drain the pasta, then return it to the pan, stir in the bacon and shallot mixture and heat through for 1 minute.
  6. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the cream and egg mixture. The eggs should thicken and lightly scramble in the heat of the pasta, but if they do not, place the pan over a low heat and cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring continuously, until the mixture is thick and creamy. Spoon into bowls and serve.
  7. Variation: replace the bacon with wafer-thin smoked ham, which has less fat.

Low-fat tip

The white wine in this recipe adds flavour to make up for reducing the large amount of double cream traditionally used in this dish.

Fabulous recipe- my new favourite pasta dish-11 Dec 2011

Great recipe, pity the picture is wrong. I suppose spaghetti would work just as well but I much prefer tagliatelle. I have made this according to other recipes that use a lot of double cream and found it too heavy and stodgy. This is much better. I tried it using craime fraiche and found it was yet more delicious. Yummy, yummy!!!-11 Jul 2012

A really simple, yet delicious receipe that will definitely become a favourite in my household-02 Apr 2009

My story when I made carbonara.

When I commenced my career in the hospitality industry as a chef, that time I never make any carbonara recipe. I kenned about the cuisine and theory of this recipe and I never tasted it.

Affirmative, it was astonishing when the first time I made tagliatelle carbonara with the guidance of my ex-chef and I checked my self. He edified me what is the right ratio of tagliatelle carbonara recipe.

But nowadays I have been recommending to people, who loved pasta. For which it is facile to make it has more nutrients than other pasta dishes. Because they customarily make cheesy for any dish of pasta.

Fresh Pasta Tagliatelle Carbonara

Next up after making my Nigerian chin-chin was Fresh Pasta. I made my fresh pasta with the same machine I used for the chin-chin recipe, which is just awesome. The tagliatelle was my immediate choice, honestly because I was craving tagliatelle carbonara. If you want the good ole spaghetti carbonara, you can find that here.

I could pretend that I know the A-Z of pasta making, especially as I'm a chef by profession but I don't. Being a chef is a continuous process of learning, experimenting and practising. I know the basics of pasta making but never have I made fresh pasta with semolina flour. Making pasta with semolina flour is quite common in regions of Italy and also outside Italy. However, my personal experience with semolina is that of "swallow", popularly used in Nigeria, eaten with soups and sauces. One thing I can tell you is that Tagliatelle is commonly mistaken for Fettuccine. Fettuccine is only just a bit narrower than Tagliatelle but who measures their pasta when eating? Not me! So if you want to call it a fettuccine, I won't judge you.

For this recipe, I used a mix of regular wheat flour and semolina flour. My reasoning here was to reduce the risk of messing it up or having to knead the dough longer than I would like to. Well, only the former was a success, but it was hard work of kneading getting the dough together. That's not very obvious when you watch the video recipe on youtube but that is the magic of production. The written recipe that follows, however, is my conclusion after several trials.

Mushrooms Button- 200g., stems removed, sliced.

Onion- 1 large, finely chopped.

Cook tagliatelle as per packet instructions.

Whilst it’s cooking, heat an oil on a frying pan, add garlic, cook, stirring for 30 seconds, add onions, and cook, till softened, add pancetta, cook, stirring occasionally, till pancetta is scorched in places. Then add chopped mushrooms to the mixtures till wilted. Set aside.

In a bowl, mix cream, egg yolks with parmesan. Set aside.

Depending, on how salty your pancetta, you may not need to add salt at all, please taste, before adding.

Put a pan back on a stove, stir in pasta, take of the heat, stir in cream mixture. Serve with parmesan.

Evan Funke’s Handmade Tagliatelle Pasta

Con Poulos for The New York Times. Food Stylist: Simon Andrews.

Evan Funke, a pasta maker and the author of the cookbook “American Sfoglino,” developed an exacting recipe for handmade tagliatelle that practically guarantees success for ambitious home cooks. It takes time to achieve the proper balance between elasticity and extensibility in the dough. If it is too elastic, it won’t stretch to the desired thinness, but if it is too stretchy, it is too hydrated and won’t maintain its shape. Keep at it: The more often you make it, the better it will be. If you find the dough springing back after you roll it out, it may need more time to rest, so let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before resuming, or refrigerate it for up to 24 hours. Because the dough is the result of just two ingredients — flour and eggs — use the freshest eggs you can find. &mdashAlexa Weibel
