Fettucine Carbonara with Roasted Tomatoes — Our Life In The Kitchen
I’ve been craving Carbonara for a while now but was having a hard time justifying the calories. The willpower was gone when I thought about throwing in some of the surplus cherry tomatoes from the garden. I also planned to make fresh homemade fettucine but I was too lazy busy to get around to it. Enter Plan B. Go to the store for fresh-ish Buitoni. Fettucine, a pound of dry or a couple of boxes of fresh or your own homemade.Pancetta, 3/4 poundYellow or White Onion, 1 mediumGarlic, 5 or 6 clovesEggs, 3Cream, 1 1/2 cupsFreshly Grated Parmesan, 1 cupCoarse Ground Black PepperCherry Tomatoes, 2 dozen or so Put the water for the fettucine up to boil. Dice the pancetta. Rinse the tomatoes and spread them on a baking pan. Fry up the pancetta in a large saute pan. While the pancetta is cooking and the tomatoes are broiling, slice the onion and chop the garlic. Whisk together the eggs, cream and cheese. By now the pancetta should be getting crispy. Add the pancetta… ..and the tomatoes.
