After a few weeks of break since the first post, here is the second flag! This time a mouthful of Italian cuisine is presented.
Just as the last time, a very easy but just as delicious dish was prepared, I’m sure you all know it: SPAGHETTI CARBONARA! But I’m also sure that you have never had such a tasty kind. I was once again amazed that only a handful of ingredients can end up as a filling and nutritious meal. My cook of the day was Caterina – she is from the beautiful city of Trieste and this Carbonara is her family’s traditional version.
Start by putting on some water to boil. In the meantime, fry all the smoked bacon you have in a pan; you don’t really need oil, the fat itself will do the job. Mix your eggs, both the egg white and yolk, in a bowl and flavor it up with pepper and parmesan. The more you use the tastier it gets (at least for me). By now your water is probably boiling, so grab a stack of spaghetti (or any other type of pasta you like) and throw it in the pot. Now hold onto the wine vinegar and hint some of it on your fried bacon, then pour the peppery-parmesany egg mix on it. Cook it for a couple of minutes. Is your pasta done? Did the whole recipe take only 20 minutes? Are you very hungry by now? The answer is YES, YES, YES, so go and gobble this tasteful Italian dish!
We enjoyed this dinner with a glass of sauvignon blanc, but of course it’s only a matter of taste what you prefer. Also, spicing up the carbonara with some onion, garlic or anything else might work too, but I’m telling you: simplicity is the key!
I wish you fun, dear reader, with trying out this easy recipe and of course, thank you for cooking, Caterina!
