SP was out with his brothers and nephews last night, so after working a long day getting ready for my work conference I decided I needed comfort food. In my world, that means spaghetti carbonara:
My coworker mentioned putting basil in her carbonara, so since I have a beautiful basil plant right in my backyard I decided to give it a try. I love the richness of the bacon and the onions and the basil added a nice sweetness that made this unlike any carbonara I've had before. It was good, but I don't think it's something I'll add all the time.
