PHILADELPHIA Quick Pasta Carbonara recipe

Cream cheese is the shortcut to making this classic Italian sauce. Bacon gives it added flavor. Just 20 minutes to fix makes it a perfect dish for busy nights.

I exchanged the bacon for smoked turkey sausage and added a little spinach. It turned out great. The whole family loved it.

Actually “alla carbonara” means “"in the manner of the charcoal makers " (“Alla maniera dei carbonai”) and refers to a sauce for spaghetti containing eggs, minced bacon (‘pancetta’, in Italian) and grated cheese (especially "Pecorino", salty cheese, made out of sheep's milk). This was in fact the original recipe which was popular among charcoal makers, i.e. the “carbonai” who prepared and maintained the charcoal pits or the charcoal piles, covered with earth and turfs, which converted wood into coal, after a small fire has been lighted in. The “carbonai”, who existed until the 1950s in Toscana, Umbria and Lazio, were forced to live away from home for several months and then used to prepare simple dishes like “spaghetti alla carbonara”.

Very good. I did not use the bacon fat as the recipe directed and it was still very good. Will definitely make it again.

By definition, carbonara includes coarsely ground black pepper. Think of the "carbon" in "carbonara" like "coal dust" - right? Gotta have pepper if you're gonna call it carbonara.

pretty simple and very quick; if I were in a big rush, I would do it again, however- I would recommend adding additional herbs such as parsley, chives, etc. to spice it up and add more flavor

I found this recipie in a free kraft recipie book at Sam's Club. So yummy! It tastes like real alfredo sauce from a resturant. I added real a real garlic clove instead of powder. Also, I added a can of mushrooms and some canned artichoke hearts. So, so good!
