Favorite Summer Carbonara Recipes

Summer means a lot of things to a lot of people, but for us, it’s all about the pasta.

Pasta is a food for all seasons, but during the hotter months, it really shines with all those in-season ingredients ready to add fresh flavors and colors to your noodles and sauces. We wanted to show you just what summer can do for a classic Italian pasta recipe. Carbonara is all about the creaminess—a texture that comes from adding fresh eggs to hot pasta rather than heavy cream or a bunch of cheeses. In these summertime Carbonara recipes, we stay true to tradition with that same irresistible creaminess, but add in some farmers’ market favorites like sweet summer corn, zucchini squash, garden cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs.
