Difference Between Alfredo and Carbonara

Alfredo and Carbonara

Alfredo and Carbonara are both pasta sauces. Both these pasta sauces come from Italy. Here let us look at some of the differences between alfredo and carbonara.

A white sauce, Alfredo is made from butter, parsley, heavy cream and minced garlic. This sauce is most often served on fettuccine noodles. Alfredo is often mixed with ingredients like parsley, shrimp, garlic and chicken. Italian restaurant owner Alfredo di Lello is credited with ‘Alfredo sauce’. It is said that he made the first Alfredo sauce in 1914. Earlier version of this was a Roman dish called Fettuccine al burro, which is prepared with butter.

Outside Italy, Alfredo sauce is most of the time combined with chicken and vegetables.

Carbonara is made from pecorino romano, eggs, black pepper and guanciale. Though it is not clear when the pasta sauce was introduced for the first time, it is said that the pasta sauce came to be known from the middle of the 20th century. It was during the 20th century that this Italian pasta sauce became famous. Some says that Carbonara is called so because of its black colour. The name carbonara is derived from the Italian word for charcoal. It is also said that this pasta was first made for Italian charcoal miners. Another version says that the Carbonara pasta sauce was originally made over charcoal grills. Unlike the Italians, Americans are known to add cream to carbonara.

Both the alfredo and carbonara pasta sauce have different preparations. It can also be seen that carbonara sauce may come a bit chilly than the alfredo sauce because of the presence of black pepper.
