Tonight I made our family The Pioneer Woman's Pasta Carbonara recipe. (I have yet to try a Pioneer Woman's recipe that I don't like.) Here's what I purchased at Aldi to make it happen: ( I had the eggs and minced garlic on hand) It all cost about $17... I can't feed my family of five drive thru McDonalds cheaper than $20! Not to mention I have half of the yummy thick cut bacon, and plenty of the Parmesan cheese (grated and shredded), onions (I bought a bag) and heavy whipping cream left for other meals. And, we had enough left overs for two adult lunch servings. I'm happy with that! :)
The result: Amazing! My hubby made more than one comment about how much he enjoyed it and all three kiddos really like it, too. I would have been happy if I ordered it at a restaurant. Winner, winner Pasta Carbonara dinner!
