This is the classic "Spaghetti alla Carbonara. There are few minor different ways to make it. If you follow exactly this method you'll impress your sweetheart. I used all bio ingredients, avoid powders or industrial food. If you can't buy fresh products try to find the best you can in your neighbor. Drink a glass of red wine with this meal and everything will be better. Respect your food, ingredients and yourself. Eat less but better.
