200g of pancetta

1 1/4 cups grated pecorino romano cheese

3 eggs, whisked

1 garlic clove

1 tbsp. olive oil 

Pepper to season





Fill a large pot with salted water & bring to the boil.


Add the bucatini to the boiling water & cook for the recommended time.


Prepare the other ingredients while cooking the pasta.


Whisk the eggs, cheese & pepper together in a bowl & set aside.


In a saucepan on low heat, add the olive oil, garlic, pancetta & cook until crispy. This should only take a few minutes.  Remove & discard the garlic clove.


Reserve 1 cup of pasta water, drain the bucatini & place into the pan with the pancetta.

Turn off the heat & keep on stirring to create a creamy sauce.


Serve the extra pecorino. Enjoy!
