Spaghetti alla carbonara

Carbonara is an Italian pasta dish that originated in Rome. It includes eggs, cheese, Italian bacon (guanciale or pancetta), and freshly cracked black pepper.

I love trying new things. In the past 11 months, I have discovered a world of new ingredients and flavors that I would have never otherwise known had I not challenged myself with this blog and to try two new recipes a week. However, when dealing with new things you aren’t always certain of how things are supposed to look, taste or turn out. Every now and then I like to call in a friend for advice, technique and even to prepare the whole meal as I sit back and feel like a lazy bum.

Wanna know an amusing secret about this post? I hate eggs. Cooking with them is one thing, but eating an egg – that idea just gives me the creeps.

I went into this Carbonara recipe knowing exactly what I was getting into and was able to chow down without really putting too much thought into it. Actually, I found it quite good. It was a very hearty pasta dish and even my meatatarian self didn’t miss the absence of a large piece of chicken, pork or beef on the plate.
