Thanks to OrgJunkie for hosting MPM. Be sure to go here for more menu/recipe ideas.
I had a request for my spaghetti carbonara recipe from last week. It's very easy and always a favorite with the family.
1 lb. spaghetti
1/4 lb. lean bacon, diced
3/4 c. grated Parmesan
3 eggs lightly beaten
1/4 c. white wine (optional)
1 tsp. pepper
Cook spaghetti in rapidly boiling water until tender. While spaghetti is cooking, fry bacon over low heat until crisp. Mix cheese, eggs and wine (if using). Drain spaaghetti and return it to the pot. Pour egg mixture over the hot spaghetti; add pepper and 2 T. of very hot bacon fat. Heat of spaghetti will cook the egg mixture. Transfer to hot platter and garnish with bacon.
Here's our menu for the week --
Monday - Bacon Chicken Crescent Ring, Peas, Apricots
Tuesday - Tuna Patties, French Fries, Green Beans
Wednesday - Breakfast for Dinner
Thursday - Spaghetti or Taco Pasta
Friday - Mexican Turkey & Rice with Tortillas
The Bacon Chicken Crescent Ring is from the Nov/Dec 2007 issue of Simple & Deliscious (I tried to provide a link but it is in the subscriber only section of their site). The Tuna Patties recipe came from the Starkist web site years ago. Apparently it is no longer available there. If you'd like the recipes, let me know and I'll be happy to post them. Have a good week!
