Carbonara is an Italian pasta dish principally from Rome made with egg, a hard cheese, cured pork or bacon, and black pepper. The dish derived its modern name in the middle of the 20th century. The cheese is usually Pecorino Romano, Parmigiano-Reggiano, or a combination of the two. Carbonara is one of the many traditional Italian dishes served in restaurants in the vicinity surrounding Rome, the capital of Italy.
