I've been making some crazy yummy stuff lately, but due to my short hiatus I haven't really been posting about food. Last night I made this tasty carbonara. Only I don't really follow the recipe. I rarely measure (unless I'm baking,) and I often substitute. In this case, I use bacon instead of pancetta.
Yesterday's dish also included pappardelle noodles. It was my first experience with these type of noodles, and I was delighted. The pappardelle was wide enough to sop up the sauce, but thin enough to not be too doughy. They had a deliciously eggy taste. Pappardelle may be my favorite noodle yet.
