This is one of my favorites Aya makes. I have had it in awhile so it was a special treat. I love pasta and pasta carbonara is one of my favs. Aya added mushrooms and spinach to jazz it up a bit.


Pasta Carbonara

1 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp butter
3 1/2oz pancetta or bacon, diced
3 eggs beaten
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp thyme
12 oz pasta (she used linguine)
2 oz Parmesan cheese, grated
salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oil and butter in a skillet. Add the pancetta or bacon and cook until browned. Mix together the eggs and milk in a small bowl. Stir in thyme and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cooke the pasta according to the directions and drain thoroughly. Add the cooked drained pasta with the eggs and cook over high heat for about 30 seconds or until eggs just begin to cook and set. Do not overcook the eggs or they will become rubbery. Add half of the grated cheese, stirring to combine. Transfer the pasta to a serving plate, pour the over and toss to mix well. Sprinkle the rest of the grated Parmesan over the top.
