Greek yogurt is an interesting additional to a traditional carbonara. The yogurt adds a creamy richness that pairs with rich and savory flavors of the guanciale and cheeses. While not 100% traditional – think of this dish as a cross between a carbonara and a quick alfredo. You are going to love it.

If you like, you can subsitute pancetta or even bacon for the guanciale. The guanciale is a little expensive but I do love it in this recipe.
