My older sister Sadie and I had a very happy four month period where we lived close to each other and both worked during the day. We made a habit of spending most evenings binge-watching Grey’s Anatomy and making some sort of Pasta.
I distinctly remember fetching coffee with Sadie before a movie night, our grocery bags of pasta and cheese in hand, and the Barista at the counter saying “You guys eat pasta better than anyone I know.” I’ve always thought that was just the best compliment.
Unfortunately, that dreamy, carby time came to an end along with everyone’s relationship on Grey’s Anatomy and my pasta eating slowed to a crawl for awhile.
But last week I rallied and decided to try my hand at Carbonara. Everything about it is blissfully simple. It is pasta, eggs and cheese stirred together until you have a warm, creamy sauce coating the noodles. Garlic is sauteed, meat is crisped and then you sit on the couch with a dreamy look in your eye and wonder why in the world you haven’t been making this every night your entire life! This pasta is comfort food at it’s finest I tell you! Make it and you won’t be sorry!
