Carbonara. This is my favorite recipe of this type. There are several more posted here if you care to do a search for titles only.

btw Gobo, cabbage sliced up or sprouts sliced up and sauteed in olive oil or butter with garlic and bacon or ham, moisten with a bit of the salted pasta water...is great on pasta. add cheese if you like. oil garlic and chese is tasty, Mushrooms? (fresh only) slice saute in garlic and oil...really fine. Spinach is also greatsauteed with garlic over pasta, with or without cheese. So invent and enjoy.

Sorry Gobo - like I said, I didn't think you had them in Canada. Trader Joe's is like a discount gourmet food store here in the U.S.

Since you say you don't like veggies in your pasta (:(), you can also add cooked shrimp, ground beef or turkey/chicken, etc., along with your sauce of choice. Cooked shrimp can be purchased bagged & frozen & all you need do is heat/thaw them in a pan with a little oil, then toss with your sauce pasta.

Here's one:

Take some sliced chicken breasts and for the day marinate them in chicken broth and fresh tarragon. Remove chicken and boil broth with some fresh tarragon and reduce some (about 15 minutes). Make a slurry to thicken just a bit and be sure to cook for 3 more minutes to minimize the flour/slurry flavor. After this add a bit of cream to thicken even more and some salt and white pepper. Toss with some linguini and sauteed chicken (oh yea, brown the chicken then finish cooking in the broth).

sauteed mushrooms are really good in this but..........

Sounds good.
I usually marinate chicken in sage and parsley

Hey Gobo --

Two of my very, very favorites are tons of sweet, sauteed onions and one with parmesan and lemon juice and zest (credit going to the Hazans, mother and son).

However, do I continue ... or do you hate onions and lemon?!

You don't like veg in your pasta? Or mixed veg? Because it sounds like you are going to try the brussel sprout pasta?

If its mixed veg you are avoiding then try having the pasta with some broccoli...you can still add your garlic and butter. The broccoli, we steam ours, is nice and sweet and al dente with the pasta. We have it with loads of parmesan and black pepper, and/or, if we have it, chopped fresh mozzerela, whichs slips into the pasta and just melts a bit, its lovely. And easy for your mother to do.....but don't you fancy giving her a night off and trying some of these your self?

Carbonara couldn't be easier....my husband makes a great basic one, just eggs, cream, pancetta, parmesanor grana and its great comfort food.
