Linguine Carbonara; Dad in the Burbs Style

The other day I got a bee in my bonnet that I wanted to cook up some linguine carbonara.

So I did it – Dad in the Burbs style which means I used a few “hacks” and whatever I had in my fridge to make it happen.

Linguine CarbonaraFresh noodles, grated cheese, and sour cream.

Linguine CarbonaraWe diced up an onion, a few cloves of garlic and shallots.

Linguine CarbonaraAdded the garlic, onions, and shallots to the pan of already cooked down pancetta. I let that cook until it was all squishy and ooey goodness.

Linguine CarbonaraIn my large stainless mixing bowl I put two eggs and sour cream.

Linguine CarbonaraThen mixed that. Mixed it really thoroughly. Whip it, whip it good!

Linguine CarbonaraI continued to whip the eggs and sour cream mixture while holding the mixing bowl over the pot of cooking pasta noodles.

Linguine CarbonaraThen once the noodles were cooked I scooped them out without draining them and added them to the bowl of whipped up egg, cream, and onion-pancetta mixture.

Linguine CarbonaraAfter a good mixing, I plated the Dad in the Burbs-style linguine carbonara.

I will add the ingredients list below (when I get a minute).
