Giada's Carbonara Pasta (My Way)
25 mins (prep 5, cooking 20)
17 ingredients
4-6 servings
I saw this recipe on Foodnetwork (Everyday Italian) and thought it looked so delicious so I ended up trying it right away. To make a long story short, I didn't have the asparagus that it called for (or at least any fresh), and my local grocery store didn't have any at the time. I ended up improvising this a little to fit what I had on hand. I used two heads of broccoli and I thought it was fabulous.
