In this article we will learn you how to make Spaghetti (Pasta) Carbonara.
Spaghetti Carbonara is a dish that consists of spaghetti that has been cooked in a carbonara sauce. Pasta carbonara is rich and decadent, and it takes as long to prepare as it does to cook the pasta.

One of Rome’s four traditional pasta dishes is carbonara (cacio e pepe, amatriciana, and gricia are the others).
There are several hypotheses as to where it came from, including:

It was created by Italian carbonari (charcoal workers), who cooked it over an open fire with their shovels.

The term comes from the specks of coal-like ground black pepper used in the dish (carbone means charcoal in Italian).

It was a fusion of American soldiers’ bacon and egg rations with local pasta dishes when stationed in Italy during WWII.

The carbonara is cooked with pancetta (or bacon), eggs, Parmesan, a little olive oil, salt, and pepper, and the ingredients are simple—just spaghetti (or any long noodle).

The silky carbonara sauce is made by tossing the beaten eggs with the boiling pasta and a little pancetta or bacon fat.

If you’re going to splurge, you might as well do it right with carbonara pasta

Stir the egg mixture quickly into the heated pasta, which should be hot enough to “cook” the egg but not so hot that it curdles.

Carbonara sauce can take some experience to perfect, so don’t be discouraged if yours is lumpy the first time you make it.

Some individuals serve their carbonara with cream. Although it isn’t customary, you can certainly do so and make an even creamier pasta sauce. Personally, I believe it is enough rich without it. Enjoy!
