Chef John's Spaghetti alla Carbonara
I'm in Shanghai, China and this was a real winner. Easy, flavorful, and unique when servd to Chinese (my wife). I will say that the pancetta or guanciale was not viable based on availability and price. So I used 'French Labon'. Basically unsmoked bacon chunks. Worked perfectly. Also if you up the recipe servings, I recommend sticking with 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups of pasta water. I made an adjustment to 6 servings and it called for 3 cups. I just felt that was too much... I think I was right on target at 1 1/2 cups. I added a bit of garlic powder and doubled the parmigiana cheese. I had no Romano. Again it was great. Enjoy!
