who doesn’t love comfort food? especially on a sunday night.
i’m currently in NYC and thought i’d give my boyfriend’s credit card a break and cook dinner. i gave him a couple options, but this one made his eyes light up!
his roommate is dating an italian guy, antonio, so there was extra pressure to get this right! while we were cooking i got a series of questions as to how i planned to execute the recipe. much to my surprise, i got the thumbs up from antonio! he even said he wished they were eating in! success!!
so here you go… italian-approved carbonara!
- 4 rashers bacon
- 1/3 c. cream
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/2 c. grated parmesan cheese
- 2 Tbsp softened butter (optional)
- 250g fettucine or linguine
enjoy! we did! no leftovers!
