Description

Just a handful of ingredients are required for this iconic pasta dish, among them eggs, black pepper and nutty Pecorino cheese. It calls for "cheek lard," though you can use easier to find pancetta to replace it. The egg mixture gets tossed with the hot, just-cooked pasta, cooking the sauce and turning it into something creamy and lush. Be sure to combine the two quickly, though, so you don't end up scrambling the eggs instead.
