Question: Why is my carbonara so runny?

Pasta carbonara can come out runny if the sauce is undercooked. Carbonara sauce is tossed with the pasta and cured pork away from the heat and after theyre done cooking. This cooking technique relies on the residual heat of the pean to thicken the sauce.

How do you make carbonara less bland?

My advice:Use good quality eggs. Egg yolks from mass produced eggs lack the richness and just cant seem to give the right texture.Try different cheeses. Pecorino Romano, Grana Padana, Parmesan. I prefer the younger, moister cheese in carbonara. Experiment with heat. How cooked the eggs are is a big factor.
