    kstrating's Note:

    Using the spices (that would make Pancetta) on the ham give it a fairly authentic flavor. This gives this Carbonara a little zing. When I first looked at the ingredients, I thought, "Really?", but it is Deeeelicious! Caveat - this might be a twice a year thing, as I'm pretty sure the cholesterol levels are going to pushing the limit in this dish. Just don't have ice cream for dessert, OK?

      Flavorful, smooth sauce with the right amount of seasoning. Thank you for posting this unusual recipe. We will use this for our next family get together. Italian with a twist.
