Carbonara is an Italian staple. “Pasta Carbonara” loosely translates to “Coal Miner’s Pasta.” The origin of the name isn’t completely known but some think the name refers to the black specks of pepper appearing to be black specks of coal. Another theory is that it is a dish invented by a former coal seller who opened a restaurant called Carbonara. Regardless of its origin, it’s a delicious dish. At Fazoli’s our Chicken Carbonara features spaghetti topped with rich and creamy Parmesan Alfredo, Parmesan roasted broccoli, baby sweet peas, chopped bacon, garlic-roasted chicken, and shaved Parmesan cheese.
