Spaghetti Carbonara II
Finally, a carbonara recipe that recognizes that once you add cream, it is no longer carbonara but alfredo! I can't tell you how many times I've been disappointed going to a restaurant that advertises their alfredo with peas and bacon as "carbonara".
Carbonara isn't supposed to be saucy, it's supposed to have the egg and cheese more like a coating. If folks want to add cream to theirs because they prefer it that way, that's perfectly fine, it's just not carbonara anymore.
This recipe is very similar to mine, I don't use wine in mine, but I can see it having a nice effect on the flavor.
