Make This Restaurant's So-Popular Pasta At Home!

Sure, we go nuts for vintage eBay scores and the latest runway trends, but there's nothing that stops R29ers dead in their tracks faster than some good ol' food porn. So, when Erica and Lauren of HonestlyWTF launched their equally delicious blog, HonestlyYUM, we just had to drop everything. Each week, we'll spotlight their creative concoctions. Go ahead, try to look away — we dare you.
The smoked bucatini carbonara is one of the most popular dishes at Superba Snack Bar, where they make and smoke their own pasta. Smoked pastas are much more subtle than they sound and paired with a creamy carbonara sauce and a runny slow poached egg, it’s no wonder why this dish is never coming off the menu at Superba. And this isn’t just any poached egg. A slow poached egg has yolk that is so velvety and sexy that you (like me) will find yourself justifying the purchase of an immersion circulator.

While pasta is cooking, heat the heavy cream, pancetta, and mascarpone in a large sauté pan. Cook on low to medium heat until sauce has reduced to a nape consistency. This should take around 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
