Any tips for getting the egg and cream correct? I don't think I did it right.
Jimmy saw this (close enough) on a TV show. If he likes it....make it again.
I cooked this recipe with whole-grain fettuccine, and I did cook some chicken to toss along with it. My husband loved it! It was interesting to make a sauce with egg in it, So it’s a different consistency then most white sauces, but it was tasty and full of protein! Instead of cooking bacon I just used bacon bits that I put into the recipe. It worked great! Thanks for sharing the recipe, I will make it again!
Absolutely divine. This may not be a perfectly authentic Italian recipe taught in Rome, but it is BY FAR the best, tastiest richest version of Fettuccine Carbonara I've ever been able to make for myself. My favorite meal has long been Fettuccine Carbonara, and I have tries dozens of recipes online attempting to duplicate the recipe that an old local restaurant (Frankie's Italian, in Marietta GA) used. Having left Georgia, I've been unable to. Find anything that compared.... Until I made this. I loved this recipe so much I committed it to memory. If you're one of the people reviewing this based on judgment without even trying it... Remove your pitiful whiney negative review and put your thoughts in the comments section. Don't post reviews for things you've never even tried cooking. Again... This is a divinely rich, clearly explained recipe, fully deserving a 5 star review. (be sure to follow the directions about how to use the eggs!)
I'm surprised by all the mixed reviews here. I prepared this as written for dinner last night and it was EXCELLENT! As long as you ensure you add the eggs as stated in the directions, it should come together easily. I will definitely make again.
We really loved this recipe! It was easy enough yet very flavorful! I could see where you need to take care to not overcook the eggs while mixing in but it was still a pretty quick dish. Had flavors of a traditional carbonara without all the hard-to-find ingredients!
Additionally, bacon is not used; panchetta is used.
Authenic Fettucine Carbonara does not use any cream or milk. I took a cooking class in Rome and that is where I learned to prepare this dish the correct way.
Janice? Start your own website if you’re such a good cook.
Jeez Janice. Why didn't you submit the recipe if you going change it that much?
