Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Food Facts
Carbonara is traditionally made with raw eggs that are thickened with the heat of the cooked pasta while tossing on low heat. There is a fine line between getting the eggs to a food safe temperature (165°F) and getting scrambled eggs (about 170°F) instead of carbonara. For that reason, we've made an easier alternative to carbonara using Neufchatel cheese. No risk of scrambled eggs here!
