Last night we were in a craving for Italian cuisine and we had a new recipe that we had never made before “Foolproof Spaghetti Carbonara” from America’s Test Kitchen. I don’t know where I came to think this way, but I always use to equate carbonara with a cream based pasta. When you read this recipe you can see that is made from just a couple of ingredients and is fairly easy to make. I sure don’t know where I ever came to think this way, but boy am I glad I have unlearned that “alternative fact”.

The recipe is very straight forward and easy to prepare. The results were superb with a pasta coated with a sauce of Pecorino Romano, bacon, bacon fat and garlic. It is so yummy.

Make this for dinner and you will not be disappointed. If you would like a copy of the recipe you can get it from our recipe database at

The first step is to cook the bacon in water until the water is completely cooked off.

Then you continue to cook the bacon in it’s fat until it is golden brown.

it is critical to properly mix the sauce so that all of the pasta is coated evenly but throughly.
