This is lighter than some carbonaras, and still very creamy. My husband and I aren't very fond of cooked eggs in any form, so combined several different recipes and a bit of my own ingredients to make this tasty recipe. Feel free to substitute chicken broth for the white wine, if you'd like. I served this with a side of steamed broccoli.
