Al Bronzo Spaghetti with Zucchini & Asparagus Carbonara

Add to favorites Remove from favorites



This carbonara recipe substitutes the guanciale or pancetta with sautéed zucchini and asparagus. 

Barilla Al Bronzo Spaghetti is made by extruding dough through a bronze die that is micro engraved. This gives the pasta a rougher texture, allowing pasta sauces to perfectly adhere to our beautifully crafted pasta.
