Spaghetti alla carbonara is one of the most famous Italian dishes. In Italy, people are pretty faithful to the original recipe, and no ingredient should be replaced or added. But this doesn’t mean that you can not try different versions, like replacing guanciale with bacon or Pecorino with grated Parmigiano or Grana Padano.
