Sunday Brunch: Chef Mario Rizzotti’s Spaghetti Alla Carbonara

Celebrity Chef Mario Rizzotti was recently on Chicago’s WGN9 News where he shared an amazing and authentic recipe for Spaghetti Alla Carbonara!


  • Spaghetti “Gentile” 1 pound
  • Guanciale “ Tempesta” Or Pancetta 7 oz
  • Large egg yolks 5
  • Roman pecorino 5 oz grated
  • Black pepper to taste


  • Cook the “Gentile” pasta according to directions on the box. Cut the Guanciale into strips. Sauté the Guanciale, until crispy.
  • Mix the yolks, the grated Pecorino Romano cheese, and the black pepper in a bowl. Stir in 1/3 cup of the cooking water to loosen up the mixture in case it is too thick.
  • Drain pasta al dente, then toss with the crispy Guanciale.
  • Stir in the yolk mixture and mix well in a separate bowl until the sauce starts thickening, but make sure the eggs do not become overcooked.
  • Serve immediately,

While on the news, Mario also spoke about Hardcore Italians new charity tee.
