A very inexpensive healthy meal. Just picked a bunch of spring goodness. Dandelions, sorrel and garlic chives. Had Asparagus, spinach noodles and eggs. Tossed together and came up with this vegetarian recipe for carbonara. Be sure to wash and spin your greens well. If you enjoy meat you can cook the 1/2 pound bacon until crispy, remove the bacon and drain on paper towels. Pour off all of the oil except for 2 tablespoons. Using the bacon fat in place of the oil and butter.
