½-1teaspoonblack pepper (freshly ground if possible)
2-3tablespoonspecorino freshly grated
In a large pot boil the water, once the water is at a roaring boil add a little salt and the spaghetti, stir and cook until a little bit more than al dente.
In a small/medium bowl beat until well combined the egg yolks, add the grated pecorino and pepper, beat to combine. Just before adding to the pan add 1/2 - 3/4 ladle of hot pasta water and mix to combine well.
Slice the guanciale into short thin strips. In a large pan add the olive oil and guanciale, cook on medium heat until desired doneness, I like it on the crunchy side, the Italian not so much. Remove the guanciale to a clean plate. Do not remove the oil (& fat) from the pan.
On medium/high heat, add the al dente pasta to the pan, and a 1/2-3/4 ladle of hot pasta water and stir to combine, remove the pan from the heat and add the egg mixture and quickly combine, add 1/2-3/4 ladle of hot pasta water and toss continually until well combined and creamy. Add the guanciale and gently mix. Serve immediately topped with freshly grated pecorino and black pepper. Enjoy!
