Notes

Named for Pope Pius XII. Similar in idea, to Pasta alla Carbonara. Quite delicious. Carefull with the salt though, the prosciutto and Grana are pretty salty already.

In the small Fruili town I lived in while in Italy for three years, this was the way Carbonara was made, and it is exactly how I still make it 35 years later. It is definitely one of the Best recipes I brought home from my years living in Italy, and I have always had wonderful comments when I've made it for family or friends!!! It is a definite 5 star recipe in my book!

This is sooooo gooood!!!
