I am a really lucky girl… my boyfriend also likes to cook and sometimes we have small “arguments” trying to decide who’s cooking dinner… friendly arguments that are usually won by me 🙂 but sometimes I let him use the kitchen… usually on our days off or on Sunday when he makes delicious pasta dishes showing all his Italian roots 🙂
His cooking style is very different from mine… I like to search new recipes either online or on my various recipe books. And then I give it my touch – he likes to invent it all from scratch or then think of a dish he tasted somewhere and tries to replicate it. He’s very good at looking at what’s in the fridge and coming up with a beautiful dish which, in the fast majority of times, includes pasta, of course.
But sometimes he likes to cook those really traditional Italian dishes that we all know and just gives it his touch… it was the case of this spaghetti alla carbonara with mushrooms… And it was simply delicious 🙂 To the traditional taste of the bacon and eggs sauce he added the mushrooms which gave it a more earthy flavour… I really enjoyed it…
