Classic Italian Flavors in a Brand New Rendition
This dish looks nothing like the traditional spaghetti carbonara, but don't let that stop you from trying it, because it's a supertasty way to enjoy some of the hallmark ingredients of carbonara in a totally unexpected way. Maffucci whisks the beaten eggs and Parmesan cheese together, then slowly pours the mixture over warm sweet-potato noodles so they gently cook and simultaneously morph into an eggy cheese sauce. The dish gets even better when you stir in cooked pancetta, garlic and red pepper flakes.
