READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Southern Polar Bear

I love finding and trying new recipes on Recipezaar. Unfortunately, some of the old family favorites tend to get "temporarily forgotten and misplaced" - like this one! This is from Chef Joe Caruso of Caruso's Italian Ristorante (with a few slight modifications).

Just wondering... did you even bother to Google 'carbonara' anything? Chicken, shrimp, etc... anything? While this was a pretty tasty dish that I may/may not make again (and that my girlfriend was quite pleased with because it incorporated 3 of her favorite meats) this was most definiely NOT carbonara. Quiche or frittata casserole, more like. I'm sorry, but again as tasty as it was - and as much as it will make a good breakfast tomorrow - if you're looking for a chicken and shrimp carbonara recipe this isn't it! Do yourself a favor, Google the term and find another recipe. However, because it was still pretty enjoyable, I give this 3 stars for overall taste.
