my daughter always used to order this at one of favorite italian restaurants i decided to make this i used bacon instead of pancetta, super easy and delicious! Add a tossed salad and enjoy.

How To Make pasta carbonara

    fry bacon until crispy,I cut mine up first then fry it, After bacon is fried put in a bowl on a paper towel and drain, use the leftover bacon grease to fry the onions and the garlic, boil the pasta and keep one cup of the pasta water set aside hot pasta, defrost the frozen peas I usually put them in a strainer and run hot water thru them so they keep their green color
