These are the last of the homemade egg noodles paired with a very rich and creamy Carbonara sauce. I made Jamie's recipe my own by adding chilies and parsley. This was so good that everyone had seconds even though they knew there was dessert.
Carrot Cake! This cake, from the Barefoot Contessa Foolproof book, is loaded with carrots, raisins, walnuts, and cinnamon. The icing, of course, is cream cheese and butter but I only had a cup of icing sugar so we ended up with a very cheesy frosting and not an overly sweet one. Just perfect!
