Spaghetti Carbonara or Pasta alla Carbonara is a pasta dish with white sauce originally derived from beaten eggs and grated cheese. As the dish became popular, different versions came into being including the creamy version that employs heavy whipping cream.
This carbonara recipe that we have has a richer and creamier sauce base compared to the original Italian version. If you will notice, I did not include salt and black pepper in the list of ingredients. The saltiness of the bacon and parmesan cheese is enough to bring flavor to the dish. If you feel like adding a little more flavor and spice, please feel free to do so. Chicken carbonara is another version that you should take a look at.
