  1. This is so YUMMY!!! I chose this recipe because I was craving for carbonara when I was pregnant and top of that is so easy to make. I adjusted the serving for 2 because I was hesitated for the outcome and waste the food. Instead, I was surprised because its incredibly delicious!! My husband and I decided to adjust the serving for 4 next time which I did. So far, I cooked this three times and will gonna make this again and again and again! Thanks Brookelynne26 for sharing this super delicious easy recipe! :)
  2. This was so delicious. I used 1/2 pound of bacon, about 1.5 cups of cream (that's all I had) and asiago cheese again, that's all I had. Only needed about 3/4 of the pasta since I didn't have much cream. And I used bowtie shells. We ate every single bite. Will make again!
  3. Delicious indeed. I did a vegetarian version with a couple of cups of mixed vegetables. Added half a teaspoon each of mustard, and Italian herbs; also a dash of coarse chilly flaked as garnish. My husband asked for seconds. Mum loved it too!
  4. this recipe turned out just as I had hoped! my husband always orders Spaghetti Carbonara at Italian restaurants so I decided to try and make it for him! It was 'teasy and SUPER tasty. Can't wait to make it for company. My husband doesn't like peas so I left those out .
