      I made this for my husband [I am on a diet] who had never had spaghetti carbonara before. He likes all the ingredients but did not like the end result. He thought it was too dry, not creamy enough. I think its a personal preference thing though. He likes fettuccine alfredo a lot and thats more his type of thing.

      this was simply wonderful. simmering the pancetta, onion, garlic and peppers in the oil for a lengthy time really allowed for the flavours to develop. i loved the simplicity of the ingredients... you can taste every one of them in the final dish without any overpowering the others (plus there was no mess in the kitchen to clean up - bonus!). i am a fan of fairly "naked" pasta and have been searching for the perfect non-creamy carbonara recipe for ages. i have definitely found it. thank you!
