About this recipe: This recipe for carbonara contains no cream, I don't think it is needed. I ate this in a little restaurant in Rome and have finally succeeded in creating my own version. I hope you like it.
I made this for my parents last week for tea and they loved it! i loved the fact it had no cream in as my dad has high cholesterol and i actually left the butter out too (and the nutmeg as i had none) and it was lovely, I will definately make this again, thank you! Also I couldn't get pancetta so used bacon lardons and forgot to add the peas and it was still great! - 02 Jul 2011
It was okay and easy to make, but the taste was underwhelming in my opinion. I did, however, like that it wasn't laden with cream. - 12 Jan 2012
lacked some flavour so will be adding more and different types of cheeses to the sauce - 11 Jul 2013
