Spaghetti Carbonara

Spaghetti Carbonara is a simple recipe to make and it’s easy on the budget too. With this dish, you add an uncooked egg mixture to hot pasta and the heat from the pasta cooks the egg mixture which makes a rich and creamy sauce. Its best if the eggs are at room temperature and you have the egg mixture prepared so that it can be added to the hot pasta quickly.
