In central Italy, pasta alla carbonara, which roughly translates to “pasta of the charcoal worker,” is made with only a few ingredients: raw eggs, grated salty cheese, crispy pancetta (or guanciale), and plenty of black pepper. The dish can be enhanced with any number of additions, including earthy porcini mushrooms, a natural partner to pancetta.
