Most people who have been in Italy will agree with me when I say that this amazing country is very popular because of it’s breathtaking views and rich culture. But in my opinion what makes Italy really great is the food. Food is a very important part of the Italian culture. Who would say no to Italy’s most famous brioche cr?mes with a warm cup of espresso? Or how about bonding with your friends and loved ones over a glass of red wine? If all of those are still not enough, it is also in Italy where you will find the best pizza and garlic bread.
When it comes to Italian cuisine, you will always have plenty of options. One of the most famous dishes in Italy is spaghetti carbonara. Because it is very simple and easy to make, carbonara is the perfect comfort food.
The meaning of the word carbonara is actually “charcoal burner”. The very first people who have tried this delicious treat are the charcoal workers in the Apennine Mountains. To make this tasty dish, you will need pasta and pancetta or even America’s favorite bacon. This dish originated in Rome but is well-known all over the globe.
If you have had carbonara in the past, you know it has a very creamy texture. But believe it or not, cream is not an ingredient of the traditional carbonara. If you are nor fond of using spaghetti, don’t worry because there are other kinds of pasta that you can experiment with. If you have a lot of time, you can even make your own pasta. All you need to do is to make sure your dough is sticky enough to run through your pasta maker.
There are plenty of websites that will teach you how to make the perfect type of pasta, some of which are MakeBestPasta, PastaMasters, and PastaRecipes. MakeBestPasta is the most popular among these websites that I have just mentioned. The recipes in MakeBestPasta are not only very easy to follow, they are also very delicious. Here is a famous recipe from the very popular website MakeBestPasta.
What are the ingredients you need?
5 tablespoons of olive oil
1 cup of diced pancetta or bacon
3 tablespoons of butter (preferably unsalted)
Pecorino cheese (freshly grated)
Eggs (4 pieces)
Chop 4 tablespoons of parsley
Spaghetti or any pasta of your choice (500 grams)
Season with salt and pepper
The first step is to place your oil and butter on a frying pan and then put it on medium heat. Once your butter completely melts, you can now place your pancetta or bacon. Stir occasionally until the meat is golden.
Mix your eggs and half of your cheese and whisk. Add black pepper.
Cook your pasta well before adding the pancetta or bacon. After this, it is now time to add the egg mixture. Stir until the dish becomes creamy.
The last step would be to season your dish with salt and pepper.
