Cooking Tips:

If you can afford it replace the bacon with pancetta as this is the original ingredient in an authentic carbonara.
Be careful of scrambling the eggs, if you think the pan is still too hot then let it cool a little before adding the egg mix.
If you don’t like mushrooms just simply remove them from the recipe.
