dailyrecipes, we had a rather in depth discussion about Carbonara a while ago. Cream is not an ingredient in the more traditional carbonara recipes. Do you feel it is essential in this recipe? I've also never heard of putting green pepper into carbonara. Does it overpower the more delicate flavour of the parmesan? Thanks for your input.
