    While I agree with the other comments here, I think Kraft was trying to make a substitute that does not include using raw eggs although adding the pasta to the egg and parmesan cheese mixture does partially cook the egg - a lot of people are totally freaked out by raw eggs in a dish. So, while this is not a true Spaghetti Carbonara, it is a possible substitute that some may find for suitable for the family dinner table. That being said, how about a little restraint and not rate a recipe unless you have actually made it.

    I made it the first time and my boyfriend loves it! The ingredients are simple and the steps are easy to follow, which is my favorite thing about this recipe because I am a busy person and usually come home late. I would suggest adding a little bit of salt into the sauce before tossing it with the pasta, but that's just my opinion. Next time I would add come chopped red bell pepper into the recipe to make the plate more colorful. I definitely will make this recipe again!
