Have you seen the movie Something’s Gotta Give? It’s a great movie with Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson. One of the scenes in the movie involves them in the kitchen in the middle of the night making Spaghetti Carbonara. It was that scene that put me on my quest to finding the perfect recipe.
My quest has come to an end and I’m here to share with you what I’ve come up with. Spaghetti Carbonara is one of those dishes that is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner or to feed a crowd. Everyone loves it, you can make a lot of it and it’s super quick to put together.
I hope you give this one a try, your family will thank you for it!
