    Sass Smith's Note:

    This is my fiance's recipe from the days when the only kind of meat he could afford was bacon! It really only bears a passing resemblance to traditional carbonara recipes, but it's awfully good just the same. Use any kind of pasta like rotelli, tagliatelle, etc., that will catch the sauce.

      Yum. Used 1/2 pound of bacon, about 12 ounces of pasta and sour cream in place of the half and half. Also added some peas. Delicious.

      Super easy. I added some chopped tomato and chard. Also substituted half the parm with sharp cheddar and added a splash of white wine. Yummm!

      So good! Even got a positive response from our son, who normally doesn't say anything about the meals he's being served. I used whole wheat penne and red onion. I also increased the amount of cheese and half/half. :)
