Carbone means “coal” in Italian and Carbonara is translated as the “coal man’s wife.” Bucatini alla Carbonara refers to bucatini as the coal man’s wife would have prepared it. Traditionally the recipe calls only for pasta, guanciale, egg and cheese, but we love to add more flavor with some hot pepper and crushed garlic.
