Should the carbonara have cream?
The carbonara must have cream and eggs. That's what gives this a depth of flavor and a thicker sauce texture. I reach for the thick cream, I think it works better.
Carbonara has raw eggs
You will find that the pasta will lightly cook the eggs and then become the base for a creamy noodle sauce. Many think that you are eating raw eggs, but even if you put this dish on the fire to make sure the eggs are well cooked, you will still get a creamy consistency over scrambled eggs, depending on the method of cooking the eggs.
Which pasta is better for carbonara?
You can use a spaghetti or linguine noodles for Carbonara. Depending on what I have in my pantry it will depend on what I use. Using a thinner noodle like angel hair doesn't work as well in the pressure cooker. I recommend using linguine or spaghetti safely.
