Made this for dinner! It was delicious. I added some onion and a little extra cream and bacon drippings because the original recipe didn't make enough sauce to coat my pasta. Will be making this again fir sure!!

I have made this a few times and the ONLY thing I do differently is I use thin spaghetti noodle instead of the rice. This is now a monthly meal at my house, my family LOVES it! Thanks for such a great recipe!

Ended up fairly bland. Would probably use less cream and some more seasonings next time.

Love this! Even my picky little 3 year old ate it. I added mushrooms and onions at the beginning and used a bit more cheese!

Very Good, My husband loved it so much, he wants it tomorrow night too. I had a lot left over, so I just made some more sauce and added to it. The fresh garlic was such a great taste with the cream. Oh and used used penne pasta instead of rice!

This is definitely delicious but it does not need the butter garlic rice. Plain rice or noodles help to bring out the flavor of the dish instead of smothering it.

Interesting recipes. A few comments though, if your going to name a recipe make sure it fits. A true Carbonara is made with eggs and pasta. of which this has none. Not really sure what you could name it though maybe a Primivera? Its the Rice that throws it off.
