Bolognese Spaghetti alla Carbonara

Spaghetti Bolognese - Carbonara

When I came across this recipe I thought it was very interesting. At first it looked like a carbonara sauce but what were the Italian sausage and tomato sauce doing in there? I do not think that you can go wrong by adding Italian sausage to a pasta dish... It was pretty tasty. The meat sauce by itself (before tossing with the egg yolk and cream mixture) is very tasty and could go by itself. It is alway fun to experiment with dishes; adding things, removing things.

you know, this is a blasphemy for any italian?!
1. bolognese sauce, (called rag├╣) NEVER goes with spaghetti, which are from Naples, but with tagliatelle (different shape, different ingredients).
2. Carbonara is ok with spaghetti BUT is only with Parmesan cheese mixed with eggs + roasted bacon with onion + (eventually some cream) + nutmeg (these are just ingredients,of course there are many secrets to do it, and they should remain SECRET!HAHAH!)
3. your recepit looks rather than a strange version of Amatriciana (the only one where you mix bacon and tomato), but that's smth different!
Anyway, it's worth trying your recepit. It's completely unorthodox but, who knows, maybe is even tasty. ;P

Authentic or not, this dish was UNBELIEVABLE! I absolutely loved it! I almost loved it more than the regular, authentic Carbonara I had in Italy. Wow! Thank you!
