{Cinnamon Pancetta Carbonara}

I love Carbonara, and have made other recipes before. This one is my new favorite with the added subtle cinnamon flavor. It goes perfect with this dish. If you are a fan of fettuccine alfredo, you will love this

  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 4 slices pancetta, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 1 box fettuccine noodles
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

Saute the bacon and pancetta in a heavy large frying pan over medium heat until almost crisp, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the cinnamon over the bacon and pancetta and saute until the bacon is crisp and golden, about 2 minutes longer. Cool. Whisk in the cream, cheese, and yolks to blend.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the fettuccine and cook until it is just tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 3 minutes. Drain. Add the fettuccine to the cream mixture and toss over medium-low heat until the sauce coats the pasta thickly, about 5 minutes (do not boil). Season the pasta, to taste, with salt and pepper. Transfer the pasta to a large wide serving bowl. Sprinkle with chives and serve.
