Spaghetti Carbonara from Everyday Reading

The bad news first: the scorpions are back. We have yet to see one ourselves this 2013, but the neighbors informed us that they've spotted two in their backyard.  While I knew this respite would never last, I still am holding on to a shred of hope that all of our filling-the-holes-in-the-wall-over-Christmas escapade may actually keep them outside this summer.

Now, the good news for you gluten-intolerant readers: I found a spaghetti recipe that can be easily modified for the same price as regular spaghetti.

Gluten-Free Spaghetti?

Yes.  Well, no, actually.

But it's really close. The gluten-free secret is using rice noodles. And if you find yourself an Asian-foods grocery store or market, you can get a package of them for the same price as a box of spaghetti. Their contents - rice and water.  It doesn't get more gluten-free than that.

*I will add here that cooking rice noodles is not the same as cooking spaghetti noodles.  For a comprehensive how-to set of instructions that we personally used, click here.*

I ran across a recipe for Spaghetti Carbonara over at Everyday Reading a couple mornings ago..and then I made it for lunch not two hours later.  This recipe has been hubby approved [as well as half-approved by the young toddler in the house - but she's not much of a lunch eater unless it's a 'nana.]. I'm not going to post the whole recipe, because it isn't fair to Janssen, the provider of the delicious recipe, but I am going to entice you with a few words:

easy, fast, eggs, bacon, spaghetti, delicious. The comfort of a hearty breakfast and good italian in one meal.

That's what you will be eating.

So click on over to Everyday Reading for some Spaghetti Carbonara, make sure to cook your rice noodles just right, and let me [and Janssen] know how you like it!

[I realize that there are a lot of links on this post that you have to click on, but I do my very best to give credit where credit is due, and to share good finds with you when I run across them.]
