The carbonara sauce seems to have been invented by a young Bolognese chef named Renato Gualandi, who in 1944 in Riccione (Italy), had to improvise a lunch for the American liberating troops. As ingredients, He only had bacon, eggs, and cheese. He decided to create a pasta sauce, adding to these ingredients only a little black pepper to best release all the flavors. The appreciation was such that the young Italian chef was hired as an American army chef in Rome. So it was that carbonara pasta sauce became an extremely well-known and widespread dish, right from the city of Rome.
