If you chop up any vegetables fine enough, they will stick to pasta. So the carbonara technique will work with broccoli, carrots, bok choy and so on.

That was an unusually tedious food blog, Subby.

There is no more carbonara. It was only made correctly once in 1967 and has never been truly replicated. Enjoy your bacon and cheese on pasta you uncultured heathens.

Some will say, of course, that if it contains anything besides pasta, pancetta, cheese, eggs, salt and pepper, it's not carbonara.

The author misspelled guanciale.

Who cares? I was told right here on this website that words evolve to have new meanings. Carbonara could mean charcoal briquettes crumbled over elbow macaroni for all I care. And people make variations on recipes all the time. Does the pasta taste good with the sauce and toppings? Great! I'll have some.

But then you'll be WRONG - and the tireless warriors of the internet will not rest until you commit seppuku to atone for your hideous incorrectness.

It's just Spaghetti-ohs with bacon bits.

I'm guessing the pitch for this article went something like this...

"Remember when the NY Times caused a stir with their weird take on carbonara? Well how about that, but more?"

No, those are more appropriately used as pizza toppings.

There's a very good chance the first carbonara was made with GI Spam. It doesn't show up in any references before the mid 1940s.

My thought too. I saw a video a couple years ago with Roman chefs critiquing carbonara recipes on youtube. Basically, it was guanciale is the correct pork product. Hard to find in the US, and pancetta is more readily available.

Carbonara done well is amazing. I am not a huge pasta lover, but a good carbonara is one I will go for anytime.
