So for my very first post I decided to swing for the fences. I went with a basic, yet delicious dish to share. Yet, for my sake, I made it a little… over the top.

I used the above two recipes to come up with my own, and added a bit of flair. I took the base of the sauce from the chipotle recipe, added the spices from the Martha recipe and added my contribution of upgraded cheese, pancetta and green onion.

Recipe:

  • 1/3 lb pancetta

Brown pancetta, set aside.

  • 1 lb bow tie (butterfly) pasta (nothing says fancy like a bow tie)

Cook pasta according to package, set aside.

  • 16 ounces evaporated milk

In a large pot, bring the evaporated milk to a boil. Remove from heat.

  • 4 eggs
  • 6 tbsp Butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Whisk in eggs, butter and spices.

  • 4 green onions chopped
  • 18 ounces Goat cheese
  • 1 cup Asiago Cheese
  • 1 cup Pecorino Cheese

Add pasta, cheese, onions, and pancetta to the pot. Heat over low to medium heat until mixture is hot.

Overall this dish was very rich. Viola did some calculations and this made about 8 servings at a whopping 1100 calories per serving! …Worth it.
