Note from Delish:

I got tons of messages requesting me to prepare Filipino style or a different and easy version
of carbonara. This is what I prepared. I know kids will like this especially if they love to eat luncheon meat. It is very easy, cheaper and probably less fatty version.

When it comes to the amount of cheese, cream and luncheon meat. You can add more if you want. I just put in some measurement as a guide. But you can still make it meatier or cheesier if you want to.
