I'm rather confused with this recipe - 5 WHOLE eggs? Carbonara isn't made with egg whites because the protein in egg whites coagulate and you don't get a creamy carbonara. I would say one egg white would be tops. I'm curious to kow how did you do it in the test kitchen or if anyone can give me feedback?! Thank you.
