  • Summary

    When a man at church found out how much my family likes fettuccine, he shared his Italian grandmother's carbonara recipe with us. I've made it my own over the last 25 years. Grated Parmesan cheese works just as well as Romano. —Kristine Chayes, Smithtown, New York

    Ingredients

    • 1/2 pound bacon strips, chopped
    • 1 package (16 ounces) fettuccine
    • 1 small onion, finely chopped
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1 cup half-and-half cream
    • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
    • 1/2 cup grated Romano cheese
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
    • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
    • Additional grated Romano cheese, optional
