Fantastic!! My first time making a carbonara. It was super simple and everyone really enjoyed it. I added shrimp for a little extra protein and used low fat cream cheese and milk with excellent results. Will be adding to our rotation.
I have made this exactly like the recipe says and it was great, but it hurt to put a full stick of butter in!! So I put half... and did 1/3 fat cream cheese. I also used pancetta and there was no grease... I guess that is a good thing if trying to make it less fat!! I used quinoa pasta, first time user, and I couldn't tell the difference. I hope this helps, the original recipe was great too!! But I was trying to make it a bit healthier for my family. Love it!!
Quick and creamy! We used packaged, fully-cooked bacon strips to save time and added more garlic for more flavor. Goes well with all kinds of sides and salads.
It was a good Friday meal and delicious. Liked putting in some peas. Had some frozen from the garden last summer. Really tasty
Made it as written and it was delicious. Next time I plan on trying to slim it down with reduced fat cream cheese, turkey bacon, and a little less butter.
I love pasta dishes, and can't wait to try this one! Sounds yummy!! thanks for sharing!
This sounds like heaven on a plate. Thanks for posting this very easy recipe.
