Bacon Carbonara on Spiral Pasta

Bacon Carbonara on Spiral Pasta

There is no such things as too much bacon — that I believe! Bacon makes everything flavorful– just like this Filipino-Style Carbonara. It gets the flavor from bacon and bacon fat — and the whole family loves it.

I used spiral pasta this time — no special reason except for it’s what’s available at home. Spaghetti, Linguini, Angel Hair are my favorite pasta shapes — because you can twirl it with a fork. Yes, I love pastas you twirl in forks .. I don’t know why. There’s just something about it. I was thinking maybe because it gets a lot of sauce?? I love love love extra sauce on my pasta. But no, the second pasta shape I love is penne and obviously, you can’t twirl it and it doesn’t get a lot of sauce.

I don’t know — siguro hindi lang nakasanayan? Kayo ba? May favorite ba kayong pasta shapes?
