Last night I had the urge to make spaghetti carbonera. Simple, 4 ingredients including the pasta. Very quick and very easy. eggs, cheese, bacon or pancetta, and pasta.
Today on another board from FB a chef was offering a Valentine's dinner for two. He suggested carbonera and gave a recipe that required a roux of flour and butter thinned with heavy cream etc. etc.
As I stated above why? It is such a simple thing that I am puzzled that anyone would want to make it complex.
