Quick pasta dish for a cold night

It’s cold in Viterbo this week — brief snow flurries this afternoon — so a warming dinner that didn’t require another trip to the store was perfect. Spaghetti alla Carbonara is as close as Italians get to eating an American breakfast for dinner…eggs and the Italian equivalent of bacon in a rich paste of parmesan cheese, garlic and onion. Christina has posted the full recipe here: Spaghetti alla Carbonara.

  1. Ciao Donica,
    I love your blog, I’ll be coming over often. I have to make a trip to VT sometime soon for some research, and perhaps we can hook up!

    As far as carbonara, I can only say 2 things: best made with bucatini and forego the garlic!!


    • Ciao, Eleonara! Thanks for the comment and I’m sorry for the delay. I will try both of your suggestions for carbonara — thanks! And please contact us if you make it to Viterbo. We would love to meet you. Your blogs are wonderful.
