Homemade Spaghetti Carbonara

You might have heard via the social media grapevine that my oven broke (and I nearly lost three fingers, but that is a story for another day). Not a good time for my oven to break at all,  since January has been already jam packed with shoots and recipe development.  Thank the gods for neighbors.

And how on earth is it already February?!

So since I couldn’t do much baking, I had to dust off the trusty pasta maker to get some good grub on the table.  I had an almost expired tub of cream in the fridge and instantly knew that I wanted to make a carb and fat loaded dinner.  Sometimes this is necessary…

I haven’t actually bought pasta from a store in ages.  When you have a nifty pasta maker at home, it’s kind of a no brainer really, homemade spaghetti for the win!

 

I’ll be sharing a cool how to on fresh pasta soon…

I don’t think a meal can be this comforting and delicious at once.  There is so much you can do with such a handy tool like the pasta machine in the kitchen.  Totally worth it. I thought you also might like this recipe of Spaghetti with Baked Lamb Meatballs or this easy Spaghetti with Chicken, Mushrooms and Zucchini.  For a vegetarian option you should go with this Spaghetti with Broccoli and Avocado -either way, spaghetti is a winner!
