"This easy spaghetti carbonara recipe is a simple dinner that comes together in about 20 minutes. The creamy pasta with bacon doesn't even need cream, as the velvety texture comes from a quick sauce made with eggs, garlic and Parmesan. Serve a bowl of the best spaghetti carbonara with a Caesar salad and a side of garlic bread for the ultimate weeknight dinner! Carbonara is an Italian pasta dish from Rome, traditionally made with egg, hard cheese, cured pork and black pepper. The word carbonara comes from carbonaro (the Italian word for "charcoal burner"). Some believe the dish was created as a tribute to Italian coal miners; others believe the pasta was a way for families who could not afford meat to add protein to their pasta while using whatever meats (usually guanciale or pancetta) and cheeses (Pecorino Romano or Parmigiano-Reggiano) they had on hand. These very simple ingredients come together in a magical way, as the mixture of raw eggs and grated cheese is combined with hot starchy pasta water to form a rich, silky sauce that perfectly coats every noodle.
