Post Vatican II Altar…
I’m on vacation and cooked my supper last night. IT WAS SIMPLY DELICIOUS! Name that food:
Spaghetti Carbonara. What about the egg? Italian food is my favorite without question. Prosciutto, peas and cream sauce is outstanding. Enjoy your vacation.
Except for the diced ham I would say cacio é pépé. That is a base pasta, and I forget the Italian name when you add pancetta. Am I close?
It is diced pancetta and it is not spaghetti carbonara on a technicality. Since I made only one serving for me, there is a beaten egg yoke with the Pecorino Romano mixed in—no egg white. Also in Rome they prefer the “pillow” part of the pig’s cheek instead of pancetta which is called, guanciale. Guanciale is also used for pillow in Italian.
I cannot fine guanciale in these parts.
No! It is carbonara but not spaghetti….
Look for hog jowls in a local butcher. It is isn’t already cured coat it in salt and herbs for a week in your refrigerator. Rinse and smoke it for 20 minutes. Rest anther few days in the ‘fridge to dry. It will far surpass anything you buy.
Father, it's pasta.Pretty sad when an aging priest born in Italy must ask the internet to identify what he ate for dinner.Not sure how long you have off, but keep an eye on the tropical weather as two systems will be entering the Caribbean, more angled long term for Gulf, but you know how THAT goes.
But Chip, but Chip, pasta is a general term, what I used was a specific kind of pasta and not spaghetti. Hint: begins: a hole in one.
The pasta is bucatini or spaghettoni
Sorry, Father, but you will just need to learn to deal with the memory problems on your own, and no hints from me such as perciatelli/bucatini.
There is a big difference in bronze cut and regular pasta.
Best leave the gourmandizing to Father Zed.
I'll try again...my other comment didn't post.Father, you can get guanciale from amazon.com
