Story Behind this Recipe
Using this type of processed cheese you can create a rich and delicious but still light taste. You can enjoy a melting texture that's similar to Parmesan cheese and be satisfied with the flavor of this processed cheese carbonara.
At Step 6, make sure not to overcook the sauce. When the sauce starts to thicken and coat the pasta, you can use the residual heat to finish while the heat is turned off.
