Frascati, Pinot Grigio, and Chablis are great choices for Pasta Carbonara. A crisp dry white wine balances out the richness of a creamy carbonara. Frascati is a Roman wine, which makes it an especially fitting choice to the Roman dish. You could try Attems Pinot Grigio. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.1 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 17 dollars per bottle.

Attems Pinot Grigio

The wine appears a very luminous, light yellow-gold. The bouquet, seductive and pronounced, releases crisp citrus alternating with ripe apricot, enriched with elegant floral impressions of hawthorn and acacia blossom. The supple palate offers exemplary crispness and a vibrant fruitiness.This versatile Pinot Grigio makes a delicious aperitif wine, and is the perfect partner to rich salads and fish-based dishes. It is superb with any summertime fare.

Instructions

Heat the oil in a non-stick pan. When it reaches a medium high heat, add the shallots and garlic and saut for a minute. Add the sprouts, cook until they are browned and become a little softer ( not too soft though, you dont want them to be mushy, but to retain a little bite). You can probably get going with cooking the pasta when the sprouts are nearly finished. Just follow the instructions on the packet for timings. The best way to cook pasta is to put it into a pan with plenty of boiling water and a good helping of salt. When the sprouts are cooked, move them to the outside area of the pan and add the bacon to the centre, allowing it to cook for a couple of minutes, turning a couple of times. When the bacon is cooked, mix it through the sprouts and give a good grind of black pepper and a little salt. Careful with salt as the bacon and the parmesan will also add a salty flavour. When the pasta is ready, bring your two pans close together on the stove. Then, with tongs, grab the pasta and drag is swiftly into the pan with the sprouts. By doing this you take in some of the pasta water. This water helps bind and create your sauce. You dont need much, in this case probably about 2 tablespoons worth. This dragging technique should ensure that you have enough. Turn the heat off under your sprouts and pasta. Add the egg (not directly on to the base of the pan but onto the pasta mixture) add the parmesan. Stir through quite quickly, this will create a creamy style sauce. Check for seasoning, and serve immediately with some extra parmesan sprinkled over the top if you wish. This works well with all sorts of pasta. The only type that doesnt work so well for a carbonara style dish is whole meal or gluten free varieties. These pastas seem to lack the starchy constituent that gives your sauce that creamy texture. Try using pecorino cheese instead of parmesan
