Carbonara Appreciation

oh yah, that’s right: carbonara…pasta alla carbonara I suppose.

My roommate is at home right now and she’s cooking up a storm, she sent me this picture of a big ol’ batch of pasta carbonara

man, I love carbonara! It’s one of those dishes that’s so rich and delicious, a small bowl is perfect every once in a while.

Heres what you need:

pasta, I prefer bucatini or fettucini



cured pork goodness: guanciale is the best but pancetta or bacon works just swell

black pepper

peas or ramps are a great addition as well

yikes, I will definitely be making some carbonara while I’m home…updates to follow hopefully.
