I must confess that it’s a rare day that I will eat pasta, but when I do, it’s got to be rich, creamy, and fattening as heck!! So bear with me, but you are going to want to make this pasta! Let’s start with the healthy news: zucchini, onions and mushrooms. Now for the not-such-healthy news, but you gotta have it: bacon (oh yayyyy)! And not at all healthy but absolutely delish: a creamy carbonara sauce made from egg yolks, heavy cream and Parmesan cheese (I warned you). Now, add some spaghetti and we are in heaven, my friends!
