I can't view that because it wants me to log in, but we make carbonara fairly regularly. Ours isn't exactly "traditional" because we adjust a few things to our taste—we usually use American streaky bacon instead of pancetta or guanciale, and we usually cut up some cooked chicken and throw that into the bacon grease to heat up (makes the dish more filling), and then when we stir the pasta into the chicken and crumbled-up bacon the bacon grease flavors the pasta big time.

I certainly believe the bit about "a substitute for bacon and eggs" because I've often eaten leftover spaghetti carbonara for breakfast the following morning.
