Hi, can anyone clarify this sentence please?
" La carbonara la faccio ...faccio rosolare la pancetta affumicata , che non so se sia giusto o se è più indicata quella dolce , ma non lo so, io faccio quella affumicata".
My go: I make the carbonara....I cook the bacon slowly, which I do not know if it is right or if it should be sweet, but I do not know,I do the smoked way.."
I am not sure this is quite accurate.Any hints?Thanks.:)

    My go: I make the carbonara....I cook the baked (wrong! correct: SMOKED) bacon slowly, which I do not know if it is right or if the sweet bacon would be more appropriate it should be sweet, but I do not know,I do the smoked way.."

    Hi there :) !

    I would go for:

    "...I make carbonara (spaghetti)....I let the smoked bacon brown slowly, although I',m not sure if it's the right one or if sweet bacon is better, anyway I use the smoked one..."

    Cheers ;) !

    Sono d'accordo con Giorgio e HolyM. Ma (invece di sweet bacon) si può dire 'plain bacon' (because that's what it's meant in the recipe)? Sweet bacon mi sembra proprio strano!!!

    Dal tuo stesso link: Green bacon also called 'plain bacon'.
    Green bacon suona davvero strano... comunque se lo dice il dizionario.

    In UK supermarkets, I've always seen "smoked bacon" and "unsmoked bacon". I'd never heard of "green bacon" before - it sounds like bacon that's gone off!:p

    Perhaps "green" bacon is produced in an environmentally sensitive manner.

    In effect I was surprised me too discovering "green bacon"...............but that was the food dictionary and wikipedia. :eek:
    Interesting to know that it sounds odd to natives: I have looked up Jamie Oliver and Nigella Lawason, and none of them mention "green bacon"...???!!!:D:eek::D
