Pasta NOT Carbonara

>
>
While  I am a great fan of  “real” pasta carbonara, I can only enjoy it completely when the egg’s are free range and completely fresh.
Not what I had in my fridge today, nor did I have the required guanciale and pecorino . Also, in it’s original form, it is most often made with spaghetti.
So what I prepared today for lunch is only a distant cousin of carbonara, although in my humble opinion, it is at least as good if not better 🙂

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !
