Cup of Noodles

The mug is an attempt at portion control! #yum

It was my first time making the America’s @testkitchen foolproof spaghetti carbonara recipe. After seeing the episode, that recipe just stuck with me for days until I caved in & bought the ingredients. Yes, it seems like a simple pantry supper, but I don’t normally have bacon on hand. 

Whole Foods’ healthy low-sodium bacon didn’t seem to work very well in the rendering step and was soggier than what was shown in the episode even after the browning stage.  Next time, it’ll be good ol’ Oscar Mayer bacon.
