This classic Italian linguine dish should be in everyone’s repertoire. Why? Because it takes no time to make. There’s much debate about whether or not to use cream in the egg-based sauce. We’ve met halfway and opted for a tiny portion of Cornish clotted cream. Best of both! Shhh...don’t tell the Italians!

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1  Herby Pancetta Carbonara With Chives

Boil a kettle

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

Grate the Italian hard cheese

Chop the chives finely

2 Herby Pancetta Carbonara With Chives

Add the linguine to a pot of boiled water with a large pinch of salt and bring to the boil over a high heat

Cook the linguine for 8-10 min or until cooked with a slight bite

Once done, drain the linguine, reserving 300ml [600ml] of the starchy pasta water

3 Herby Pancetta Carbonara With Chives

Meanwhile, heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat 

Once hot, add the pancetta lardons and cook for 3 min or until they're starting to crisp

 

4  Herby Pancetta Carbonara With Chives

Meanwhile, wash, dry and rip the red gem lettuce into rough, bite-size pieces

Combine the white wine vinegar with 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper - this is your dressing 

Once the pancetta is crispy, reduce the heat to low and add the chopped garlic 

Cook for a further 1 min, stirring constantly, then remove from the heat 

5  Herby Pancetta Carbonara With Chives

Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl

Add the grated cheese, clotted cream, half of the chopped chives (save the rest for garnish) and season generously with both salt and pepper

Whisk with a fork as if you were making scrambled eggs- this is your egg mixture

 

6  Herby Pancetta Carbonara With Chives

Add the drained linguine to the pancetta pan with a few splashes of the starchy cooking water and return the pan to a medium-high heat

Cook for a further 2 min or until most of the water has evaporated, stirring often

7  Herby Pancetta Carbonara With Chives

Reduce the heat to very low, add the egg mixture and stir continuously for 30 sec-1 min or until the mixture has thickened ever so slightly, adding more cooking water if you need to loosen it a bit - this is your carbonara

Tip: make sure your heat is very low, otherwise you will make scrambled eggs rather than a smooth sauce!

Dress the red gem with your dressing
