What would be your last meal on earth? I hate that question, so I apologize for asking you. But now you have to answer, so do it. The question stresses me out, because I love too much food! Would it be an indulgent short rib dish? Something Mexican? An entire chocolate cake?? I can't decide!! Pasta is definitely high on the list, and specifically Spaghetti Carbonara. Pasta in a creamy egg sauce with bacon, I mean, come ON! It's always my go-to order at a nice Italian restaurant. However, since I can't eat like there will be no tomorrow EVERY night, I like to modify my favorites to make them slightly healthier. Like this carbonara dish made with spaghetti squash!
I followed this recipe and modified it by using whole milk instead of ricotta (because it's what I had on hand). It was so tasty, and a fun variation of the classic dish. Of course if it really WAS my last night alive, I would throw the squash straight out the window and go for the real stuff.
