Pasta Ala Carbonara - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
This recipe is a classic recipe of Italian cuisine basically from Rome. Carbonara is basically originated from Italy in city called Rome. Mostly this recipe uses hard cheese, pork bacon/veal bacon, egg & black pepper. However, in today's my recipe i have used pecorino cheese, black pepper, chopped french parsley, egg yolk, pinch of salt and pork panchetta. This dish should not be too much salt since there is a additional saltiness from panchetta and pecorino cheese. The consistency should be creamy with no any addition of cream . Mostly this dish looks and taste amazing using spaghetti Pasta but any kinds of pasta can be used as well. This dish is so simple that one can cook easily at home with short preparation of time.
