Follow this authentic Italian recipe and you'll have a bowl of delicious creamy pasta in under 30 minutes!
Guanciale, dry-cured pork jowl, is available from specialty markets. Substitute unsmoked bacon or pancetta for the guanciale if desired.
I’ve made this recipe twice. Once substituting pancetta, the other time prosciutto. Both turned out to be delicious. I think the richness of the eggs are what make this dish a winner. Minimal prep time and cooking time make this a great entree. Add a glass of Chianti and you have a wonderful meal. Ciao! - 26 May 2019 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Love this! I used Panchetta and we added shrimp. And since I’m cooking for two I cut it in half. I also suggest using two whole eggs and one yolk. Don’t add cheese till after. I also like adding pasta water to my Carbonara to make it creamy!!! - 04 May 2019 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
My favorite pasta dish and so easy to make! My hub, who does not like pasta, LOVES this! Yay. I now have a pasta dish to make which he will also eat. I added half a chopped onion and 2 garlic cloves. Will make again. - 28 Apr 2019 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
