Spaghetti Carbonara | Quick and easy traditional Italian dish! Perfect for weeknight dinners! Only a few ingredients: spaghetti, eggs, bacon, parmesan cheese, olive oil ! And in only 20 minutes it's done! Perfect!!

 

It is a traditional spaghetti recipe of Rome!! If you visit Rome, you have to eat Spaghetti Carbonara. And if you’re at home, you can think of your holidays in Rome and make this carbonara!

The name is derived from carbonaro (the Italian word for charcoal burner), some believe the dish was first made as a hearty meal for Italian charcoal workers. In parts of the United States, the etymology gave rise to the term “coal miner’s spaghetti”. It has even been suggested that it was created as a tribute to the Carbonari (“charcoal men”), a secret society prominent in the early, repressed stages of Italian unification.  It seems more likely that it is an urban dish from Rome, although it has nothing to do with the Roman restaurant of the same name.

It is a quick and easy recipe! Maybe you have seen a lot of recipes concerning Carbonara, but although I have decided that this recipe just shouldn’ t be missing on my blog 😉

  2. Emmi this is such a classic recipe and I love seeing how it is a bit different the way you cook it as opposed to how we cook it in the states. Typically we might use one or two egg yolks. This sounds so much richer!

    Thanks for bringing this by Throwback Thursday!

    Mollie
