    Def will make this again but maybe add something to spice it up thought it was a little bland

    Fantastic!! Substituted pancetta for the guanciale. Aside from that made the recipe to the letter. Even my fussy 11 year old son devoured it!

    Super easy and very good, but something was missing. Maybe it was the way I made it

    Need to not include the meat with the pasta until ready to serve - it falls to the bottom and i tough to portion out for service

    What a treat. Don’t discount the simplicity of this carbonara recipe. You might fly to Rome to get the real thing but you can come close enough with this process. If you can’t find guanciale, uncured bacon will do nicely. Slow cook the bacon in large skillet to liquify most of the fat. Once crisp break the bacon into smaller pieces. I found that fusilli is also an excellent substitute for spaghetti. Heed the advice given - combine the eggs and pecorino on the side and mix into pasta as it’s being served. Aperol Spritz was a great companion drink.
