Last nights dinner: Pasta Carbonara

This is a good "go to" recipe. We weren't very motivated & the pork chops were still in the freezer, so we whipped up some Pasta Carbonara. Here is how it went down...
I sauteed an onion in some extra virgin olive oil, then added about 6 pcs. of bacon cut into 1 inch pcs. let that cook over medium high heat. Laura started my whole wheat angel hair in a pot of boiling water. While that was going, I beat 2 eggs, 2 tablespoons of sour cream & a lot of grated parmesan with S & P. When the pasta was done we strained it & folded it into the bacon & onions. Then the burner was turned off & the egg mixture was stirred in.

It was quick, easy & delicious. Just what I was in the mood for.

    I love Carbonara, too. It's an awesome, satisfying winter pasta.

    I'm surprised you went with angel hair pasta, though. Isn't it too fine to hold up to such a thick sauce?

    Instead of traditional bacon, try the Italian bacon, pancetta, for a slight change the next time you make this great dish.

    Well, it would have been too fine but we used whole wheat angel hair & it has a little more backbone.

    The best part is....Leftovers. Oh yeah.

    I will have to get some pancetta & try that next time.
