SPAGHETTI ALLA CARBONARA
Spaghetti Alla Carbonara
This is my take on Linguini Carbonara; I prefer the Spaghetti, I believe this holds the sauce better. Sometimes, when I make this for more carnivorous persons, I add meatballs. I "cheat" when I do this. I will use either hot or sweet Italian sausage and squeeze the meat out of the casing to form the meatballs. I learned this trick from Jamie Oliver on a segment he did on Late Night with David Letterman. I cook the meatballs in the same skillet as the pancetta, I just start them about 4 minutes earlier, since they take a little longer to cook.
