MINT SPAGHETTI CARBONARA

Spaghetti carbonara always seemed to be a bit intimidating to me and I have no idea why...at all. This could not be any easier to make and is absolutely delicious. While some will cheat and put cream in the sauce, a true carbonara has only eggs as the sauce. I've added mint to this and it really works, but you can add any herbs, vegetables or meat that you like. Anything goes!
