"When I met and fell in love with my husband, I asked him what I should make him," recalls Rach. "I said, I can make you anything, lobster thermidor or any type of cuisine from anywhere in the world.... And he wanted the most simple thing: coal miner's spaghetti—carbonara! It's John's favorite dish on the planet." Here, she dresses it up with crab meat and calls it crabby carbonara or "crabonara!"
Heat pot of water for pasta.
Heat a deep skillet over medium heat with EVOO, 3 turns of the pan Add guanciale or pancetta and render to slightly crisp.
Add garlic and swirl, then add wine and cook on medium-high for about 5 minutes, or until slightly reduced. Add crab and thyme (if using) and reduce heat to low to warm through.
Cook pasta 1 full minute or 1 ½ minutes less than directions in well-salted water. Reserve about ¾ cup water before draining pasta.
Whisk up egg yolks, cheeses, pepper and the reserved water to temper the eggs yolks.
Toss the drained pasta with all and serve immediately topped with parsley.
