NO CREAM!!! :ROFLMAO:

I had the carbonara at a restaurant in Rome. (How could I not order it?) We met a large group of my family there. It was a great meal and a highlight of our trip.

Ottimi prodotti e le lorio carni sono eccellenti.

From memory, like such poverty foods as piaella, carbonara is made with whatever scraps of food are at hand.
I was told that it was originally created by an Italian charcoal burner during WWII as a meal for some hungry GIs who were fighting their way North.
