Savory Carbonara Torta
Tonight was one of my favorite nights when I just went into the kitchen and winged it. I had a craving for pasta carbonara but wanted to put a little twist on it, so I grabbed all the usual suspects and went to work. First off I boiled a 1/2 lb of mezza rigatoni, but you can use any pasta of your choice. After it was cooked I tossed it with 2 tablespoons of butter, a bunch of chopped parsley and plenty of fresh cracked black pepper. Next I fried up 1/2 lb of bacon, drained and chopped it and set it aside. Then I finely diced 1 cup of cheese, I used muenster but you can use anything you like. Next I scrambled 8 eggs with 1/2 cup of heavy cream and 1/4 cup of a grated blend of 50/50 parmesan and romano cheese. I tossed all the ingredients together and put it in a greased spring form pan, baked it at 375 until set, about 40 minutes. This was one of the most yummy comfort foods I have ever made, good for breakfast, lunch or dinner a must try!!!!
