My Italian grandmother never put cream in her Carbonara sauce when she made it - she said it wasn't the way it was supposed to be made. This is the way.
However you make Carbonara, remember never to throw the eggs in full heat (i.e. directly in the frypan pan) as they will overcook and you'll have scrambled eggs! They will cook just enough with the heat from the pasta in the bowl.
Made it more kid friendly. Would probably break spaghetti in half if serving to smaller kids. - 03 Dec 2010
Quick and easy but with stunning results. Had some bacon that we didn't know what to do with so gave this a go. This will definitely become a regular meal for us! All the kids loved it. Thank you so much for sharing this excellent recipe. - 03 Dec 2010
Yep, the only way to make it - without the cream. Not too rich and much tastier. - 27 Oct 2013
