Spaghetti Carbonara


Sometimes side dishes get all of the attention and that’s okay! This spaghetti carbonara is that dish. It’s quick so it’s perfect for a night of grilling. You can sit on the patio while you grill and when there’s like 15-20 minutes left, pop in the kitchen and whip this together.

When I say it’s simple, I mean it.
