trust me - its gonna look cool. just you wait and see.
A : ancient torture device
B : acupuncture practice
C : dinner
if you said C - you win...... absolutely nothing. congratulations. the specifics of what you're looking at are cut up hot dogs (5 of them into about 1 inch pieces - you can use more hot dogs if you want, i only had 5 left) and several pieces of thin spaghetti noodles pierced through them. no, this is not the entire box of pasta, BUT i will be using the rest of the box..... keep watching.... i'm up to something....
A : industrial glue
B : eggs, cheese, herbs, salt, pepper, and milk
C : i would say, but kids might be reading this
did you say B? - good job! again, you get no reward. so this is a carbonara-type sauce b/c quite frankly i am tired of marinara all the time. mix up 5 eggs, 2 handfuls of shredded cheese, salt, black pepper, basil and "italian seasonings", 1/2 cup of milk or cream, and put this on the side to be dealt with later!
some things i learned while making this:
1 - using thin pasta resulted in some breakage, so i suggest using regular thicker spaghetti to avoid this
2 - the pasta contained inside the hot-dogs still gets cooked - i have no idea how, but it does. just go with it.
3 - poking pasta through hot dog pieces is TIME CONSUMING..... make this a family project, know what i'm sayin? wrangle up your slaves to help you do this part.
4 - the regular carbonara recipe includes bacon, so i strongly encourage the addition of bacon. why i did not this time is beyond me... i think i was tired :P
