"I've made carbonara in the past and it was less than successful but this one turned out really well. My kids devoured it and I had two helpings myself :) Some people said that once it cools down, it gets dry and reheating makes it worse. My husband works late and so I had to reheat it for him, and what I did was put a little splash of chicken broth in the bottom of a skillet and put the noodles right in there with it. As they heated up, the broth soaked into the noodles, bringing back that creamy texture to the sauce. Will make again!"- mtdewaddict82
Top-ranked recipe named "Spaghetti Carbonara"
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. When it is boiling, throw the spaghetti in. Most dried spaghetti takes 9 to 10 minutes to cook, and you can make the sauce in that time.
Cut the bacon crosswise into pieces about 1/2 inch wide. Put them in a skillet and cook for 2 minutes, until fat begins to render. Add the whole cloves of garlic and cook another 5 minutes, until the edges of the bacon just begin to get crisp. Do not overcook; if they get too crisp, they won't meld with the pasta.
Meanwhile, break the eggs into the bowl you will serve the pasta in, and beat them with a fork. Add some grindings of pepper.
Remove the garlic from the bacon pan. If it looks like too much fat to you, discard some, but you're going to toss the bacon with most of its fat into the pasta.
When it is cooked, drain the pasta and immediately throw it into the beaten eggs. Mix thoroughly. The heat of the spaghetti will cook the eggs and turn them into a sauce. Add the bacon with its fat, toss again, add cheese and serve.
snoki 1 week agoIt's looks so good
Fll 3 weeks agoThis is a good basic recipe, which is what I look for when making something for the first time. I made it tonight, but added a large portelbello mushroom sauteed with a finely chopped red bell pepper and chopped blanched green beans. Also I used a huge amount of garlic and turkey bacon because the saltiness. It Turned out to be a very good and filling summer dish that didn't make me feel like a lead balloon. Sorry if you found it bland, but that's on you cook.

Pattianne20002000 4 months agoI added 1/2 lb diced ham and planned to add 1 cup of peas, but forgot. I also used minced garlic and left it in for flavor. My daughter, who does not like tomato based sauces, loved it.
