Carbonara is my all time favorite pasta dish! I've always been afraid to try it because I thought the recipe was complicated. I got this recipe via email "recipe of the day" and thought I'd try it. I had to use pancetta because I couldn't find guanciale. I also used linguine noodles because I prefer them. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written. It was super easy to make and incredibly delicious! I seriously almost ate all of it myself. The peppery taste is incredible. Don't skimp on that and use fresh ground if possible! I thought the whole cup of water would be too much, but it's not. It made a delicious creamy sauce. I'm not sure how this will reheat. I have a feeling the sauce will separate. I'm going to try though because throwing the left overs out would be a sin. Seriously, this recipe is awesome! I loved this dish and will definitely make it again now that I know how! If you love carbonara, definitely try this. If you don't love carbonara, you will after you make this!!!
