You know how much I adore quick and easy recipes (and I know how much YOU love them), and this one is no exception. In a mere 15 minutes and with the greatest of ease, you can make the most delicious, authentic Spaghetti alla Carbonara you have ever had!

Spaghetti alla Carbonara is a traditional Italian pasta dish that has pancetta (bacon can also be used) and is tossed with a mixture of parmesan cheese and eggs. And even though it uses so few ingredients, it has the most amazing, rich flavor. It’s decadent, salty, smoky, and absolutely 100% delicious.
