Ingredients (4 servings)

  • 3 eggs
  • 250 g breadcrumbs (or bread softened in milk)
  • grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • melted butter
  • salt
  • pepper
  • a pinch of nutmeg


Mix the two types of flour with the eggs and spread out a dough, that you will roll with the rolling pin, being careful as it breaks easily, then cut it into large stripes, about 1 cm wide. 
Fry lightly the chopped leek in some oil, add 100 g diced pancetta and the glass of wine, then cook on a high flame for a few minutes.
Cut the remaining pancetta in thin strips and brown it in a frying pan at the last moment, until it becomes crisp, then put it aside.
Cook the tagliatelle, pan-fry them with the prepared pancetta sauce and add pepper and grated pecorino cheese. Put them in dishes, placing the thin strips of crisp pancetta on top.
