Spaghetti Alla Carbonara

"Another one of Angelo's dishes. Note that the cooked pasta needs to be added immediately to the raw egg mixture in order to cook the egg."

    First time making any 'carbonara' of sorts... turned out great! Had to use bacon instead & half & half (as is what I had) but was enjoyed by all. For personal pref, I added chopped garden basil to mine & loved that addition too. Recipe was easy & came together well. Will make again!

    fried a little bacon - chopped - in a non-stick wok....removed the browned bacon and poured off most of the bacon fat. added a chopped garlic clove and some green onion chopped to the remaining grease and softened by heating....added the drained pasta to the wok and the bacon bits...poured the egg/cream/cheese mixture on top of the pasta, stirred and re-heated until i was sure the eggs had cooked...plated and added additional cheese....i think that next time i prepare that iam going to increase the cream amount by 1.5....for me, my first result was a little dry.....great recipe.

    This was gorgeous! I used a garlic clove finely chopped cooked with some bacon. Stuck to the rest of the recipe and used fusili (twisty) pasta! Even my 4 year old daughter loved it! Will defo make this again!

    Delicious! Rich and creamy - it doesn't get much better than this...except, well, I took the liberty of adding 1 very large minced garlic clove. I also used bacon instead of Pancetta. Real comfort food.
