Spaghetti alla Carbonara

This is yet another dish that comes from my amazing brother-in-law, Nick (the Italian cuisine master). Nick lived in Italy for a couple years and brought back some awesome recipes, including this one! This is a very traditional Italian recipe — very simple and easy but FULL of flavor. This stuff is the REAL DEAL. We devoured it! Thanks for sharing with us Nick!
