  • 150 gr. apaki, (or smoked pancetta) cut into cubes

Skewers with Cretan Graviera and smoked apaki or pancetta.

Recipe by chef Dimitris Karatzaferis.

Ingredients:
500 gr. fried pasta
150 gr. apaki, (or smoked pancetta) diced
150 gr. Cretan graviera, grated + extra for serving
150 gr. milk butter, at room temperature
3 egg yolks
Salt
freshly ground pepper

Preparation:
Boil the skiufichtas in salted water. We strain them and reserve 400 ml of the boiling water that will serve us later. We don’t refrigerate the skiufichts.
In a pan, sauté the apaki without fat until golden brown. Pour in the pasta boiling water, let it boil, strain the water and keep it aside. We return the apaki back to our pan. In a bowl, mix the egg yolks and add the grated gruyere and the butter. Put in the bowl the water that we had previously strained. With the help of a blender, beat the egg mixture well until it becomes a cream. The texture will be like an eggnog. Pour the cream into the pan with the apaki and put it on a low heat, adding the boiled squiofichtas and salt and pepper. At first, our sauce will be very runny, but if we leave it for 5 minutes with the spaghetti and stir frequently, it will slowly thicken.

Serve with freshly ground pepper and grated Cretan cheese -graviera-.
