Josh's Sort-Of Carbonara or Cheesy Bacon Pasta
20 mins (cooking 20)
5 ingredients
2 servings
This is my fiance's recipe from the days when the only kind of meat he could afford was bacon! It really only bears a passing resemblance to traditional carbonara recipes, but it's awfully good just the same. Use any kind of pasta like rotelli, tagliatelle, etc., that will catch the sauce.
