Ugly Pasta Comfort Food

This is my new favorite, go-to comfort food. Several weeks ago I was looking for a way to use up a squash and found a modification for pasta carbonara in Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everthing. Squash or zucchini replaces the bacon, but the recipe keeps the pasta, egg, cheese, and liberal use of pepper. I like bow-tie pasta instead of spaghetti, and I increased the amount of squash in the dish. It is fast, warm, and lovely. Try it!

I'll have to try this. Carbonara is also good with mushrooms subbed for the bacon, btw.

Rebekah--What do you do with it? I have a limited zucchini repertoire.

Jer-Oooh, that sounds good. Must try that.
