Recipe Week 4: Pasta Carbonara

I'm still playing catch up a bit. I made this recipe a couple weeks ago. It was a pretty easy weeknight dinner, and reminded me a bit of homemade mac n' cheese.

It is pretty simple to make. You start with fresh pasta.

Then, cook some diced pancetta in a pan with oil and add it to the pasta.

The cheese sauce is made from a rich, heavy cream, freshly grated Parmesan cheese, and egg, all whisked together.

Finally, the sauce is added to the pan and cooked on low heat, otherwise the egg will scramble.

All in all, this is a very easy weeknight meal. I got about 4 servings worth out of the batch.

Recipe is found here on Spoon Fork Bacon's website. While you're there, poke around a bit, they have a nice selection of both savory and sweet dishes, and many of them are Asian recipes you can make at home.
