Inspired by Appetite, Directed by the Pioneer Woman

November 22, 2011

I used to read The Pioneer Woman on a daily basis and even years later am still very fond of her and happy to hear that she’s getting a show on The Food Network. When I decided to take a stab at pasta carbonara and couldn’t find a satisfactory recipe from simple Googling, I remembered that she had featured a carbonara recipe that I had liked. Using her (really, her pastor’s) recipe as a starting point, I took out an egg and added in a dash of whole milk (I’ve been putting whole milk in my morning quick oats), added some red chili flakes to my sauce, and substituted green peas for parsley. I think I needed more cheese – otherwise, attempt number one was satisfactory!
