  • The sauce is bright yellow from fresh eggs, and each bucatini hides cubes of fatty guanciale. This yolk-heavy recipe is beyond creamy—without cream!—with black peppercorns. It's unlike any clumpy carbonaras you've had. The tricks? Omitting most of the egg whites; their water thins the sauce. It's a pasta worth mastering.

    I always make it with whole eggs in the pot. This looks yummy though.

    The sauce will not get very far inside the bucatini noodles unless you stand them on end

    Why add the guanciale to the sauce? Why not add after mixing?

    Ok Italians commenting, relax cause your food isn’t that hard to make. It’s like Taco use the same 7 ingredients in everything. This looks delicious.
