Revisiting Old Favorites

Over the past few weeks I've tried a lot of new recipes. Some were definite keepers while others were downright awful. About a week ago I decided I was done experimenting for awhile, so I paged back through the early months of my blog to find old tried and true meals. Of course spaghetti carbonara was at the top of the list.

I made this batch with fettuccine since I didn't have any spaghetti. It was silky, salty and creamy. Just what the doctor ordered.

I also made four breakfast burritos - one for my breakfast tomorrow using regular taco sauce, two for SP's breakfast using chipotle taco sauce and one for a freezing experiment. I wrapped it in wax paper and put it in a plastic bag. The plan is to try having it for breakfast next week so I can see how it holds up to a week in the freezer.
Pin It!


  1. Mmm I love carbonara! It's so yum. Now I'm craving it. Does this recipe you used call for raw egg that gets added towards the end, then cooks before you eat it through the heat of the pasta? That still creeps me out, even though it technically cooks. Not enough to turn me off carbonara though! ;)

  2. Katie - yes, the recipe I use calls for 3 raw egg yolks to be added to the pasta right before serving to create a silky sauce. It is a crucial component to the whole dish. :)
