Prepare a pot of salted water to boil.
Grate the cheeses on a microplane. Immerse the pasta in cooking for 4 minutes.
Break the whole eggs into a bowl and add the yolks, beat them; then add the cheese. Add a teaspoon. of crushed pepper.
In the guanciale fat sauté pan, pour a ladle of the pasta cooking water, bring to the boil and add the cooked pasta using tongs. Roll pasta back and forth for 4 to 5 minutes.
Add the egg / cheese mixture off the heat, mix for 1 minute, then on a very low heat, continue to mix. Add the crispy guanciale (keep some for dressing). Continue rolling the pasta 2 to 3 minutes to make it creamy and add grated pecorino.
