    First time making this dish and so glad I used this recipe, it came out amazing. I kept the pasta and sauce separate for leftovers

    Note for myself: The amount of Parmesan (75g) and cream (177мл) same = 0.5 of cup. And cook the sauce properly enough to kill Salmonella, but not much to melt the eggs

    I have made this recipe a dozen times! It’s always a hit in my house. Very easy to make too! I will sometimes make chicken on the side too!
    I made this with what I had ~ finely chopped brocolli & ham ~ instead of peas & bacon. My husband said it was one of the better things I've made!

    It turned out great! Easy to make. I missed reading the reviews before cooking...I added salt 😬. Nonetheless my boyfriend loved it. I thought it was good but not my fav.

    Was delicious! I went for a more traditional take by leaving out the peas, but I added some lemon zest to cut through the richness of the dish.

    So easy to make and delicous! I didnt have any cream so i left it out and added pasta water at the end to thin it out. Worked beautifully.

    As an Italian, I must say this way too different from the original one and from what we do here in Italy. I'm sure it's super tasty, but I wouldn't call it carbonara. Of course this is my opinion. Buon appetito!
    I loved this recipe. My daughter loved it too! Will definitely make it again. It was delish!

    Made this recipe and it was honestly so simple and easy and really quick to make. I decided to add some prosciutto and also some parsley as well. Next time I will definitely add more vegetables to it. It was divine thank you 😊

    The best Pasta Carbonara I've had & made! We love the Pioneer Woman!!!💜

    This turned out great! I would suggest that home cooks cook the bacon & onion and prep the sauce before boiling the noodles. Our noodles were done before the bacon was ready, so the final product was not as hot as it should have been. Terrific flavor!!
