Spaghetti Carbonara or Pasta alla Carbonara is a pasta dish with white sauce originally derived from beaten eggs and grated cheese. As the dish became popular, different versions came into being including the creamy version that employs heavy whipping cream.
This pasta carbonara version that we have has a richer and creamier sauce base compared to the original Italian version. If you will notice, I did not include salt and black pepper in the list of ingredients. The saltiness of the bacon and parmesan cheese is enough to bring flavor to the dish. If you feel like adding a little more flavor and spice, please feel free to do so.

Bowtie (Farfalle) pasta with Vodka Sauce is one of the dishes mentioned above. Although vodka is not a commonly used cooking ingredient compared to wine and beer, it does some magic when combined with tomato or tomato based sauces.

So, why am I posting pasta recipes that are non-Asian in nature?

We cannot stop our Filipino palate from liking other foods, could we?

Spaghetti and Meatballs is a pasta dish consisting of spaghetti (a long, thin, and cylindrically shaped pasta that is of Italian origin), tomato sauce, and meatballs. Though spaghetti originated from Italy, it is said that this particular dish was first cooked in New York by Italian immigrants. However, there are claims that a similar version of this dish was served in Sicily even before it became famous in the USA.
This can be considered as a healthy food. The crushed tomatoes produces Lycopene (cancer fighting agents) when cooked for a certain period of time. Herbs such as fresh basil and parsley also contribute to the health benefits of this dish. In addition, baked meatballs contain less oil and fat compared to the fried ones.
