Vegetable Fettuccine Carbonara

"Crisp-tender veggies swirled in a creamy/cheesy/eggy sauce. Too good! Just omit the bacon to make this a vegetarian version."

    just wanted to let ellie2 know that there's no problem with the eggs as they do actually 'cook' on the hot pasta. It is the same way you make carbonara. Your children are safe eating this.

    Although I used the vegetables that were listed, I think it would be very easy to use whatever was handy. Although the sauce is very good (and doesn't taste like you are eating raw eggs)I felt a bit apprehensive about eating raw eggs and therefore would hesitate giving this dish to children.


<style>body { background: url(""); background-repeat: repeat-y; }</style> OK, here goes. I live in Athens, Greece. I moved out here many, many years ago from Ottawa, Canada - so I am blessed in having two wonderful heritages! I suffer from compulsive obsessive behaviour with regard to food and my psychiatrist thought it would be a good idea to find a 'society' where many have the same problem and try to find a cure. So far, I've copied a couple of thousand recipes from this site and my psychiatrist has thrown the towel in and refuses to answer the phone when I call. What did I do wrong? Got 3 kids that keep me on the go - 10 and under at this point (2008) - I may not get round to updating this for a few years, so you'll have to do your own maths. I teach English full-time and Greek Cookery part-time. I would like to make the cooking part of it full-time and the English Grammar part of it part-time. That's all for now.
