Pasta has always been one of my favorite ingredients and I always have some in my pantry because it can be prepared in many different ways, and it’s very economic. It’s a very useful ingredient to have since you can make so many recipes with it, from exotic to very basic. I remember when I was student I used to make pasta almost every day, just by adding whatever sauce I had available. One of my favorites, and also one that’s very economic, is spaghetti carbonara. This recipe only requires a few ingredients and can be ready in less than 20 minutes. MORE + LESS -
