Make Your Own Carbonara At Home
It is no secret that a lot of people wants to visit Italy because of it’s breathtaking views and rich culture. But in my opinion what makes Italy really great is the food. When it comes to Italian culture, food is always on the top of their list. Who would say no to Italy’s most famous brioche cr?mes with a warm cup of espresso? Or how about spending time with the people you value most while drinking red wine. If all of those are still not enough, it is also in Italy where you will find the best pizza and garlic bread.
When it comes to Italian cuisine, you will always have plenty of options. If you love eating pasta, you will love Italy’s spaghetti carbonara. Because it is very easy and simple to make carbonara, a lot of people choose this as their comfort food.
The meaning of the word carbonara is actually “charcoal burner”. The very first people who have tried this delicious treat are the charcoal workers in the Apennine Mountains. To make this tasty dish, you will need pasta and pancetta or even America’s favorite bacon. This dish is invented in Rome but is very popular worldwide.
If you have had carbonara in the past, you know it has a very creamy texture. But believe it or not, you don’t need cream to cook the traditional carbonara. If you are not a fan of spaghetti, there are also other types of pasta that will make an excellent substitute. If you have a lot of time, you can even make your own pasta. All you need to do is to make sure your dough is sticky enough to run through your pasta maker.
If you go online and visit websites like MakeBestPasta, PastaMasters, and PastaRecipes, you can easily get some advice on making the perfect pasta. MakeBestPasta is the most popular among these websites that I have just mentioned. Aside from the fact that their recipes in MakeBestPasta are delicious, they are also very easy to follow. Allow me to share with you a simple pasta recipe from MakeBestPasta.
