Carbonara is a well known spaghetti dish in every home. Everyone loves it and everyone has their own version of it.
The dish actually has a short history. Apparently the recipe is not found in cookbooks older than 50 years.
For this version I have used avocado instead of cream and it was a hit at the family dinner table.
It still gets creamy, velvety and absolutely delicious.
I skipped the pancetta because I don`t eat pork, but feel free to incorporate it.
