“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Something yummy
Monday, April 5, 2010

An author friend who'd just finished reading "Househusband" and "Man of the House" asked me if I really cooked as well as Linc Menner, the protagonist. I replied by saying "You be the judge," and I sent her my quick-and-easy recipe for pasta carbonara. Enjoy.

Chop an entire package of bacon into little pieces and fry until fairly crisp.
Take bacon from pan and leave a few tablespoons of the oil.
Fry a diced onion in this oil. After about 10 minutes, add as much whipping cream as you need, but no more than a pint.
Let simmer on medium-low, stirring, for 15 minutes or so.
Then ... stir in a cup of frozen peas (which you have previously thawed)...and the bacon ... and (here's my secret): THREE BIG SHAKES OF TABASCO SAUCE...
Stir, then pour all of this into a bowl with already-cooked pasta and about a cup of finely grated Romano or Parmesan cheese....also a handful of minced fresh parsley....then some black pepper and salt to taste....and toss and serve!
