About this recipe: A beautiful Italian tagliatelle carbonara. For beginners, you can combine the mixture in a mixing bowl instead of the pan to make extra sure that the eggs don't curdle.

Cook the sauce last minute for best results. I don't recommend you reheat it but if you want to, do it over a pot of boiling water.
