Suddenly want a creamy carbonara? Discover how in this easy-to-prepare carbonara recipe.
Among Filipinos, carbonara is becoming common. This Italian pasta dish, which is based on eggs, cheese, bacon, and black pepper, came from Rome. The dish was created in the middle of the 20th century. In this recipe, fettuccine pasta is used, but other kinds, such as rigatoni, linguine or bucatini can also be used. However, spaghetti is usually used as pasta.
Generally, carbonara is prepared by combining the hot pasta with a mixture of raw eggs, cheese, and a fat (butter, olive oil, or cream) away from additional heat to avoid coagulating the egg, either in the pasta pot or in a serving dish. The eggs should create a creamy sauce and not curdle. Meat is also added, in which bacon is commonly used. The use of egg, which maybe whole egg, only the yolk, or a mixture, makes the difference among carbonara recipes.
Cream is not common in Italian recipes, but is used in this recipe here. Other variations may include peas, broccoli, mushrooms, or other vegetables. As the creamy carbonara title implies, this recipe is meant to be creamy. Hence, evaporated milk, all-purpose cream, and cheese, and cheese, and loads of cheese are used. Aside from bacon, ham is also added.
