Sometimes you can be too cocky in life, and that's when disaster strikes. The dish the that you have made zillions of times and each time turned out to be perfect becomes a flop. What do you? Lasagna is one those recipes that I had mastered and it was perfect for my crazy venture of making recipes from seven Continents. I had been following Sara Moutlton recipe for ages and it was hit every time I made. My DH l on our grocery shopping trip last week asked me to gather stuff ,so I could make Lasagna . It had been a long time since i made it. I gathered the pasta, sausage, cheeses and came home. But when I searched for the recipe I couldn't find it. So what the heck ? My dear friend ,the Internet can help me.I googled and guess what I couldnt find the recipe. So from memory I tried making it. It didn't become exactly the way it should be or rather i should say I prepared little less Sphagetti sauce. My poor DH felt disappointed but gobbled it up . Now four days later I still cant find the exact recipe. Sofor you folks out there this is a recipe that is similar to the lost recipe -Lasagna
Since my lasagna was unsuccessful, I decide to make Pasta with carbonara sauce the next day (Dh likes this also). When i started cooking with Italian, ,the sauces I knew was only Marinara & Alfredo. Thanks to Tom Cruise appearance on Oprah I learned about Carbonara Sauce . Click here for TC Carbonara sauce. When I am short of time, I end up making carbonara sauce with pasta .The sauce contain proteins and if you serve it with salad on the side you have your proteins, greens and carbs right there. It isnt a very figure friendly recipe though.
- 4 eggs
- 1/4 c. butter
- 1/4 c. milk
- 1/4 lb. bacon, cut up (I used a table spoon of Bacon bits instead)
- 1 c. grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
- 1/4 c. snipped parsley or 1 tbs dried parsley
- Pepper & salt as reqd
- 1 tsp red chilly flakes
- 1 cloves of garlic.
- 1 Lb Pasta (your choice though Fettuccine recommended)
Beat the egg , milk and cheese in a bowl. Boil pasta as per direction in box and drain it. Meanwhile in a pan heat butter .Saute bacon and garlic. Add red chili flakes and stir for a minute. Now add the boiled pasta.When the pasta is heat add the egg mixture and switch the heat off. Mix thoroughly. The pasta's heat cooks the eggs and coats it. Now serve with a garnish of Basil.
I am not a good photographer , but I like to participate in the Click Events by the funny JB. Why? Only because I feel that events challenges my brain to come up with something. This was stolen idea from my sons project. He came home with turkey cut out and he had to dress up a turkey. I bought the colored pasta and did the project. With the left over pasta I created my entry for Click event. My sons turkey had to be here tooooooooooooooooooo.
