Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large nonstick pan, heat the olive oil, and then add the guanciale and garlic. Cook for about 10 minutes, making sure that the meat does not get too crunchy and the garlic does not burn.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add the pasta to the water, and cook it about 2 minutes less than indicated on the box. Strain the pasta and add it to the saucepan over a medium-high heat, toss it around for a few seconds, then add the grated Pecorino, toss for one minute. 

Cook’s Note

If you see that the garlic is browning too fast, remove it from the pan, finish the pork, and then add it again to the sauce. Since you probably rinsed it before, make sure the herbs are well dry; otherwise you'll end up bathing yourself in a sprinkle of boiling oil.
