Sophisticated recipe speciality from Fabio of the Milano Scala, Milan

Spaghetti Carbonara style with artichokes
Hard wheat Spaghetti
2 eggs
1 pot artichokes (cooked)
200 Pancetta
100g fresh, grinded parmesan
sea salt, pepper
Mint leaves

Cook the Spaghetti 7 minutes in boiled water. Mix the eggs, a bit of cooking water and pepper pinch, then add the Spaghetti and mix it again. For this recipe we are using the Jar cooking method. You need an hermetic jar where we will put the Spaghetti to be cooked in a bain-marie. Add the artichokes and the pancetta you sautéed before and continue mixing. Then add parmesan cheese and a pinch of salt and mix it again. Put the Spaghetti and the sauce in the hermit jar. Add some fresh mint leaves and close the jar. Cook for at least 10 minutes in Bain-Marie in already bopiling water. With the jar cooking method, the heat gradually intensifies and remains inside the jar, preserving all flavors. To avoid the pot and the Jar stick together put a napkin between them. Remove the jar and place it on a plate!
