red carbonara

October 4th, 2007 · 7 Comments


so here’s a fact.  when a dish calls for white wine and you’re too lazy to go and get a bottle, especially when you’ve just uncorked a nice red… don’t think you can substitute one for the other.  because you can’t.

it pretty much blew it for me.  the carbonara was a straight forward version.  onion, pancetta, a mix of parmegiano and pecorino and of course eggs.  i wish i’d had a bunch of parsley but i was out and as an afterthought we used some basil which was a good addition to a not so good dish.  so you may not see any red, but i did – after i took a bite.

edible?  yes.  repeatable?  no…
