This is my absolute favourite dish. Then again I have to say that as it's my wife's recipe. Some of the ingredients aren't traditional to a carbonara but wait to you try it. What makes it so special is that with every mouthful, you can taste every one of the ingredients. It's also super simple and in the time it takes to cook the spaghetti, everything else will be is cooked.
Large Saucepan for the pasta
Large frying pan/wok everything else
Spoon to stir
