Spaghetti Carbonara (with Eggs and Smoked Pancetta)
Spaghetti Carbonara (with Eggs and Smoked Pancetta)

Bruno Recommends :- Spaghetti Carbonara (with Eggs and Smoked Pancetta)

I include a recipe for this well-known dish because most people I know get it completely wrong, either adding milk, too much cream or letting the eggs become scrambled. Our recipe is the real thing, cooked fresh and served straight from the pan.

The recipe was brought to Lazio from Umbria by coal men (carbonari), who came to sell charcoal to the Romans. The recipe was adopted by the Romans and is now famous worldwide.

This is a great Lunch or Dinner on a cold day, why not enjoy it with a glass of FRANCIACORTA BRUT Italian champagne or PROSECCO
