Most Popular Italian Dishes

Italian cuisine is renowned all around the world for its rich flavours and traditional ingredients. Pasta is without a doubt Italy’s greatest export with a staggering number of us eating it at least once a week! With this in mind, here is a handy guide to some of the most popular Italian dishes.

Spaghetti alla Carbonara - This is one of the most celebrated pasta dishes in the whole of Italy; however it is most prominent in traditional Roman cuisine. The authentic Roman version includes very few ingredients; these being, guanciale (pig’s cheek), pecorino cheese, egg and a generous helping of black pepper. The key to the perfect carbonara is to remove your pan from the heat before adding the egg in order to avoid curdling. Nothing really compares to indulging in this authentic Italian dish in a real Italian restaurant in Rome, so if you are travelling to Rome anytime soon, book your accommodation via pages like this one and head out to try some of that incredibly delicious pasta alla carbonara.
