carbonara for 6, tactics

cleopatra999 | Nov 20, 2012 08:43 AM

I have cooked carbonara for 4, that was a challenge itself, and I did not really have enough.

Any idea on amount of pasta? This will be for a main course, not a traditional primi. I am thinking at least a dozen yolks.

Any tips on how to make this work? Split in 2 or 3 batches? I do have a pasta pot big enough thankfully. I can cook all the pancetta in one pan then split into a couple pans. Mixing the pasta, water, eggs, bacon and cheese altogether and serving hot is what I am most concerned about. Any tips on getting this done without looking like the Tasmanian Devil in the kitchen is most appreciated.
