4 egg yolks

2 sticks of butter

1 cup pancetta

1 cup heavy cream

parmesan cheese

  2. Add 2 sticks of butter on the spaghetti, mix well.
  3. On a separate bowl, mix egg yolks and heavy cream.
  4. Season with salt, pepper and parmesan cheese until desired taste is achieved.



  • add more heavy cream if you prefer it more creamy.
  • you don’t need to add butter on the spaghetti if you don’t like the buttery flavor but I must say it is worth it. Give it a try and let me know what you think. πŸ™‚
