I used 3 eggs, halfnhalf instead of cream, and added some garlic and chopped green onions for extra flavor. My family loved it. Very quick to prepare (20 min.) A keeper.

This is always been one of my favorite pasta dishes. I used pancetta instead of bacon, cooking the pancetta in olive oil until lightly crisp. I added another 1/4 cup of Parmesan to the dish an...

HEY !! I'M AN ITALIAN GUY FROM BROOKLYN, I KNOW A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ITALIAN FOOD.. GREAT TASTE AND EASY TO MAKE THUMBS UP.....

I modified the recipe slightly by frying some chopped onions in the bacon oil and once soften, i added the pasta to the same pan. My partner, a carbonara fan descripted it as perfect.

very good-just be careful not to overcook the cream sauce mixture or the eggs will cook independently of the cream. Also add some ham and mushrooms for added zest.

This recipe was definitely missing something....

Quick and easy to make, restaurant quality, as advertised. Everything was perfect, a little bland but overall texture, feel and taste was great.
