How to Store Carbonara
30 minutes after cooking, let the carbonara cool, covered, at room temperature. If the carbonara is still steaming, tilt the cover for 10 to 15 minutes so the carbonara is just barely exposed. This will let the steam to escape. Transfer carbonara to a plastic bag or container with a tight-fitting lid. To prevent too much air, completely fill the container. Before sealing the plastic bag, squeeze out any extra air. For up to four days, keep the sealed carbonara in the fridge.
