Food Rule Number Five: Cook What You Have on Hand
Spaghetti Carbonara, adapted for this occasion to Fettuccine Carbonara with fresh peas!
I had no pancetta for this one. So, I used bacon. If no pasta, I would have used rice or ...
I added extra egg yolks to the creamy sauce to give us more protein.
If I had other veggies, I would have added them.
The point is to improvise with what you have in your fridge or pantry.
Most times, theresults will be just as good, if not better than the original recipe you were after..
