    I disagree but I'm not going to continue this.

    Have a nice day.

    Not when in their name is "Authentic Italian".
    Most chefs will give a pass on cream, though prefer it without. Peas and mushrooms absolutely not.
    This had so much cream that it was basically a tasteless Alfredo.

    Absolutely.
    I cook a lot, and if I say so myself... very good at it.
    On one hand it was my fault for not reading the description which clearly says "Peas and mushrooms". However it also stated "egg cream sauce". Which is a lie. Egg cream sauce doesn't have cream in it.
    When I make Carbonara I take 4 eggs, use only the yolks from two and the full other two eggs. Take about a cup 1/2 of the hot pasta water, and vigorously whisk while slowly pouring in the eggs to prevent any clumping so the eggs/water become like cream. I then put in the spaghetti and stir well, add maybe a half cup of shaved Parmesan. That makes the sauce.
