I should declare this week cheesy-pasta week. We have this amazing-ness from last week, plus this recipe here…and another super smooth and tasty homemade mac n cheese recipe coming on Friday. Cheese…I love love love cheese. And I love making homemade cheese sauce for pasta!!!
This is a simpler homemade cheesy pasta…this is an eggy-cheesy carbonara sauce that coats and covers the hot, hot pasta! Be sure to read the recipe closely, if you’ve never made a carbonara – it’s super easy, I promise!
And be on the lookout for more cheesy fun later this week!!!
