This is a quick, simple pasta dish: cheesy, lemony comfort food. I adapted the recipe from In Erika’s Kitchen (mostly just added thyme). If you like a refreshing, citrussy pasta dish, this is great. It would probably be particularly nice in the summer-time.

Spaghetti alla Carbonara is a classic Italian dish with cheese, pancetta, black pepper and eggs. There are lots of Carbonara recipes on the internet, and several in my cookbooks. One thing seems certain: the seemingly more-authentically Italian recipes don’t include cream, deriving all the creaminess from the cheese & eggs. This is perfect comfort food for a chilly autumn Sunday evening; cheese, bacon, garlic—what’s not to love?! I say bacon as, being a last minute dinner idea on a Sunday night, I have no pancetta and no reasonable chance of getting any. So, bacon will have to suffice. Also, I have no pecorino, just parmesan. Still, I’m doing pretty well!
