Whoever eats 1 kg of spaghetti alla carbonara doesn't pay.
A carbonara challenge is taking place at Il Maritozzi Rosso restaurant in the Trastevere district of Rome, each night from 10-30 September.
Whoever manages to eat 1 kg of spaghetti eats for free (otherwise they pay a €38 "participation fee").
The restaurant says it has only witnessed the feat being achieved once, by a champion who polished off 1 kg of spaghetti in 18 minutes and 23 seconds.
