  1. Anna L'americana says:

    I’m curious why you call this a Carbonara as it seems to have no relation to the original Carbonara dish……?

  2. I named it like this because roasted turkey ham gives the dish flavour very similar to real Spaghetti Carbonara.

  3. sounds delicious. perfect as an after-holiday meal.
