    I had never made carbonara before and worried that the end wouldn't cook properly. I've made it a few times now and it's always been successful. It was really nice but I suspect someone who has eaten real carbonara might miss the pancetta (even before I was vegetarian I never liked pork, so it's no loss to me). It works well as a quick mid-week pasta meal but if you're really pressed for time, I'd recommend the silky courgette bow tie pasta which is much faster.
