"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut
Angela's Italian and Sicilian Recipes
Orecchiette Carbonara with Leeks
Orecchiette Carbonara with Leeks
(Orecchiette Alla Carbonara Con Porri)
4 pancetta slices, diced
2 medium leeks (white and pale green parts only), halved lengthwise, then cut crosswise into 1/3-inch pieces
10 ounces Orecchiette (little ear-shaped pasta)
2 large eggs, room temperature
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano cheese plus additional for serving
1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley
Cook pancetta in large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 8 minutes.

Using slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towel to drain.

Pour off all but 2 tablespoons fat from skillet if necessary.

Add leeks and saute over medium heat until tender, about 6 minutes.

Set aside.

Meanwhile, cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until 'al dente', stirring occasionally.

Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup pasta cooking liquid.

Whisk eggs and 1/2 cup Parmigiano cheese in medium bowl to blend; gradually whisk in 1/4 cup pasta cooking liquid.

Add pasta to leeks in skillet and stir to heat.

Remove skillet from heat.

Pour egg mixture over pasta and stir until sauce is just creamy and eggs are no longer raw, about 2 minutes. Return skillet to very low heat if egg mixture is runny; do not overcook or eggs will curdle.

Add some of remaining 1/4 cup pasta cooking liquid to pasta if needed to moisten.

Stir in pancetta and parsley.

Serve pasta, passing additional cheese separately. Makes 4 servings.
