*Stir in eggs mixture OFF of heat. Make sure cooked pasta is HOT when adding egg mixture so eggs can cook.* Spaghetti Carbonara - The easiest pasta dish you will ever make with just 5 ingredients in 15 minutes, loaded with Parmesan and bacon!
Gnocchi Carbonara - Made this tonight and it was a loser. No one liked it. Not to mention its not a cheap meal. Will not make this again. So disappointed. I did do store bought Gnocchi as I just don't have time to make fresh, but still not good.
This dish is a deli egg-bacon-and-cheese-on-a-roll that has been pasta-fied, fancified, fetishized and turned into an Italian tradition that, like many inviolate Italian traditions, is actually far less old than the Mayflower. Because America may have contributed to its creation, carbonara is Exhibit A in the back-and-forth between Italy and the United States when it comes to food. Remember: the main goal is creaminess.
