Reviewed Rock & Roll Spaghetti Carbonara

Nov 13, 2014 in on

This recipe was pretty good. I didn';t use onion as that is not in an original carbonara. I increased the parmesan cheese to 1 cup and I think what is most important is to mix the egg and parmesan together and then add to the bacon and pasta once you';re at that point. At the end, I added about 1/2 tsp of nutmeg. The bit of white wine mak...

Dynamite! My family loved this! Only addition I made was to add some freshly chopped sage. I used a spiral honey ham and it worked out beautifully. Didn't use salt anywhere as the ham itself is quite salty..gotta watch that cholesterol!! Thanks, Ina!! Will surely make this again! "

Excellent! Being married to a Dutchman and having lived in the Netherlands, adding a carrot and potato is essential. There are many variations to this recipe. I used a thick slice of European bacon from the deli which works out perfect. Will make this again."

Dec 18, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

I found the Fregola at our local specialty foods store, Grecos in Surrey, BC. This recipe was fantastic and esp enjoyed when warm. I made no changes as I wanted to try the real recipe first and don't think I would change a thing other then perhaps add a bit more parm. ""

Tasty! I did about 2 cups arugula and about 1.5 cups of spinach and followed the rest of the recipe except added a bit of olive oil to the sauce. So healthy and will definitely make again.""

This was quite tasty. I had leftover chicken taco filling (about a cup) so used that up. Also added a handful of mozza into the pasta mixture and the sour cream. I'd surely make this again.

In separate bowl, sifted 2/3 cup sugar and the instant coffee, 1.5 tsp baking powder and cocoa (I used 1/2 cup good quality cocoa (the darker the better). Added...
