Of course when it comes to field trips with my sister, we always get sidetracked and never get anywhere on time. When if finally came time to make dinner, I was looking for something quick to make. I thought of doing one of my favourites, breakfast for dinner, but then low and behold, on the pacakage of bacon (why not use bacon, I did afterall buy 4 packages of it today!), there was a recipe for a carbonara! SWEET!
Bacon and eggs,Italian Style
(Pasta Carbonara a la Kirkland Signature bacon package)
1 lb bacon
1 lb pasta - tonight I used Soba noodles
1 cup grated parmesean
1/3 cup chopped parsely
1 tsp italian seasonings
pepper, salt to taste.
This is easy and quick!
First, chop and fry bacon until crisp. While this is getting its crisp on, put a large pot of water on to boil.
Place the bacon aside on paper towels to drain.
Mix the parmesean cheese into the eggs.
As soon as the pasta is cooked, drain and transfer to the bowl with the eggs and parmesean.
The boys enjoyed the pasta carbonara. My son thought it was bland but liked the texture of the sauce. A google search netted basically the same recipe but I wonder if some garlic would have helped?
It was tasty. So tasty.
