One tradition claims that this pasta dish with the additional main ingredients of bacon, hard cheese and eggs was invented by charcoal burners who added them to their pasta to enjoy a hearty and tasty meal during their brief lunch breaks.

Be that as it may, one thing is for certain, Spaghetti carbonara is a very easy and quick to prepare pasta dish that if full of savory flavors.
