Woodcutter's Pasta - Trenette alla Carbonara
This works great substituting for trenette with 1 lb. of fettucini or linguini, when the noodles are just done and still very hot, drain and transfer to a warm bowl and add 2 beaten eggs, up to 1/2 cup melted butter, 1/4 lb. grated romano cheese, and 4 strips of cooked and chopped and salt pork or bacon, and toss. The heat of the pasta, butter, and bacon will cook the eggs and melt the cheese, then serve. One of those dishes to die for, if you are still able to eat food this rich. Unfortunately we aren't.
