Carbonara Month at Casa Barilla

April 06 through May 06, 2018

Carbonara Day was established in Italy last April 6 as a way to hail a particularly delicious pasta that most believe was first made in mid-20th Century Rome as a hearty meal for Italian charcoal workers. Casa Barilla will celebrate the second annual Carbonara Day by introducing Chef Alfonso Sanna’s signature Pasta alla Carbonara on April 6th and keeping it as part of the Barilla menu until May 6th for a full month of celebration.

 What makes the story of carbonara even more interesting is that the recipe is not fixed. Almost every Italian chef will cook it as he or she sees fit, and Chef Alfonso is no exception. His Pasta alla Carbonara is made with Barilla Thick Spaghetti, Crispy Bacon, Pasteurized Egg Yolk, Parmigiano and Pecorino Cheese, a Touch of Cream and Crushed Black Pepper.
