This rich and creamy Roman pasta dish is traditionally made with guanciale—pork cheek that resembles unsmoked bacon and is cured with salt, pepper, and sometimes garlic. Pancetta makes a fine substitute. Although some restaurant kitchens add cream to this recipe, it isn’t necessary. The combination of cheese and eggs results in a very creamy sauce.
