I'm too lazy to type this up in a proper recipe format, but this is for a pound of fettuccine.

Fry 2-3 pieces of bacon in a big pan until crispy.
Pull the bacon from the pan and toss in appx 4-6 TB of flour and cook until the roux starts to smell nutty.
Add milk (1-1.5 cups?) and cook until thickened, toss in the freshly cooked pasta, some peas (appx 1-1.5 cups) and the bacon which you broke into pieces while the sauce was thickening. When fully mixed turn off the heat and stir in 3 beaten eggs. Serve immediately.

Your post showed up immediately below this one in my flist.

Luckily for me, just now I'm craving more raw-fish protein than pork fat. Luckily, because there is no bacon, husband or transport in sight for the next several hours. Elsewise I'd be clawing at the walls screaming bacony goodness.

That is a disturbing combination of posts. Glad to hear I haven't driven you completely insane :)

Being in the final stages of grad school, I'd like to think it would take more to drive me insane. Hungry, yes. (Lamb?! That's just cruel.)

The single thing I look forward to most about having a real job – besides the fact that it won't be a 24/7 job – is an abundance of time and money resources to cook.

Oh, gods, this recipe would be the final straw. My gall bladder would crawl through my abdomen, break out through my stomach, ooze itself up to my face and smack me.

Wow, that's just truly disturbing to envision.

But anyway, BACON!! Yes!

I'm curious - why the roux? My carbonara is simply bacon, pasta, egg, parm and cracked pepper. I know the peas crop up in some other recipes, but hadn't heard of roux before.

Normally I wouldn't make a roux either, but I had milk that needed using or it would go bad. Plus, S wanted the carton, so we could make it into a sailboat :)

Hey, we tried this recipe of yours last night! It was good! But you have to kind of drown it in salt, too. Also good if you top it with a few raw chopped tomatoes.
