Carbonara with bacon and cheese asparagus

Carbonara with bacon and cheese asparagus: a spring variation of one of the most popular Roman cuisine.

Pasta Carbonara with bacon and cheese asparagus: a first tasty dish that are a key spring one of the favorite dishes and famous Roman cuisine. The pasta carbonara. Among other things, if you have not prepared the carbonara and you are afraid that the egg rags and overcook, or raw ruins, Look at my VIDEO RECIPE CARBONARA STEP BY STEP on YouTube.

As you know, carbonara wants traditionally rigatoni or short sleeves, but I used the egg maltagliati homemade, because when I make pasta never throw the 'trimmings': tear them by hand and do the maltagliati. And remember that with advanced pasta you can make even the pasta for soups.

Don't worry though: If you fall in love with this dish, you can prepare it easily with any type of fresh egg pasta. Okay long pasta such as pappardelle, but also a short short pasta such as garganelli (highly recommended). If you prefer pasta from durum wheat, use it safely. Obviously the pasta carbonara with bacon asparagus and pecorino is prepared with an emulsion of egg yolk and pecorino. Just like PASTA WITH THE TRADITIONAL CARBONARA, But where there is the pillow. Never use the bacon in the carbonara, remember this!
