Story Behind this Recipe
Parmesan cheese is expensive, and heavy cream is full of calories, but, I want to eat a rich carbonara! That's when I decided to make some with ingredients that I could use without worrying about my wallet too much. This is a hit with my friends whenever I share the recipe with them!
To prevent the egg yolk from cooking too much, turn off the heat when adding the ingredients. If it's too watery, heat on low for a bit and mix until it's the consistency you'd like. If you keep sliced garlic in the refrigerator, you can easily use it at any time!
