Spaghetti alla Carbonara

October/November 2005

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (45 votes)

In this version, the eggs are cooked into a custardlike sauce. An extra step, yes, but the technique ensures food safety. To vary the vegetables, try green beans, asparagus or frozen peas (cook peas separately from pasta).

Normally I use way more eggs and add cream

Normally when I make this pasta I use more eggs,prosciutto, alot more cheese and I even add cream and butter, so when I read this recipe I was very sceptical about what it would taste like, but I really love it! You can actually taste every ingredient including the pasta and I like that better than that my pasta soaks in sauce. My alltime favorite vegetable to add in is shiitake mushrooms.

much more healthy with the same great taste

DISLIKE

This was a complete waste of my time and energy. I couldn't possible dislike it anymore. I tried the sauce over and over and just kept ending up with watery looking curdled eggs. No matter what I did. I tried everything. I finally ended up with something passable as food, and the whole dish was just bland. I had to add so much salt and cheese to give it any kind of flavor. honestly it ruined my night.

Good and quick, though I disliked the sauce. The first time I tried to do it I ended up getting scrambled eggs and the second time I turned the heat down and stirred it longer.
