The ingredients are simple—just spaghetti (or other long pasta), and the carbonara is made with pancetta or bacon, eggs, Parmesan, a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Pasta carbonara typically features a creamy sauce that's made with pancetta, garlic, heavy cream, cheese and eggs. The egg-based sauce is cooked by combining it with the piping hot spaghetti pasta and a little of the cooking water. For this easy carbonara recipe, I used bacon instead of pancetta since it's generally easier to find. The word carbonara comes from the Latin carbo, or charcoal, though how the word came to be associated with a creamy, eggy pasta recipe is somewhat of a mystery.
