Pasta Carbonara is one of the best flavored dishes around.
Unfortunately it is also not a very easy dish to master.
But here is Theo Randall and he has made it so simple you can cook it in 10 minutes.
The pasta takes about 10 minutes to cook and you can prepare everything else while you wait for it to be ready.
Quick tip for the pasta: The water you boil it in should be well salted, so it’s almost like sea water. Don’t let the water boil furiously, a rolling boil where you can see a little movement in the water is best.
Pancetta is the ideal meat to use for the carbonara dish but if you can’t find it locally, a traditional bacon is alright.
If you twist the tongs in circles when you put the pasta on the dish it will look better and put a little bit of fresh green herbs on the top, it makes the dish look more delicious.
