Carbonara Filipino Style

Carbonara is a dish that originated in Italy. This Italian pasta dish made of eggs, bacon, cheese and black pepper. For the pasta, usually fettuccine, bucatini, linguine, rigatoni and spaghetti are used.

Carbonara is my favorite pasta dish. I have tried both the American and Italian version and both taste great. However, my daughter prefers the creamy type carbonara. This creamy carbonara consists of cream, mushroom, ham and bacon.
