Fettuccini Carbonara With Gorgonzola

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Barb G.

This recipe comes from a Ristorante in San Diego, CA. Prepare sauce while pasta is cooking to ensure that the fettuccine will be hot when the sauce is finished; the heat of the pasta cooks the raw eggs that are tossed with it.
