This made a lovely dinner tonight. It was quick, too. I made a full recipe for the sauce, and used about 4 servings of homemade pasta. I had been wanting to know how to make Carbonara, because I often order it at a restaurant I frequent. This recipe's Carbonara is at least as good as the restaurant's. Thank you for sharing the recipe with us.
