Directions

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. 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.

When the guanciale and the garlic are nice and golden brown, add the sage.

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.

Garnish with some grated Pecorino, a drop of extra-virgin olive oil, and some ground black pepper. Serve with a bottle of robust red wine.

Notes

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.

    First, I must say I enjoy this cooking show and look forward to it very much. It is family oriented and is so down to earth. I always feel like I am right there with them.

    I do hope that they continue this show for a long time. I can't say enough about how it encourages me to do more healthy cooking.

    The best cooking show on TV. Thank you Gabriele and Debi

    This was a delicious, simple, and very wonderful pasta recipe that everyone in the family loved!!! I used pancetta instead of the meat that he used. Try it you won't be sorry!!!

    Sooo good. I also used bacon. I find simple dishes often have the most flavor. This is such a wonderful family show. Not just a really good cooking show but a sweet family and friend's show. Hoping for more seasons.
