Garlic in or out?
My sister puts garlic and also a little vermouth in hers, and it is very good, a little less ....stodgey and a little more smart, more dinner party food.
but my Itailan husband just uses parmesan, eggs, cream, grilled bacon and seasoning.......and really thats my dream food.....
either is good but the simple version is warm and comforting. With good rich cream and free range eggs with rish yolks it gets all the flavor it needs and lets the simple tastes through to be appreciated more.
I cook neither (why would you if your spouse and your sister have perfected either version!) but I sure like eating it! My mouth is watering............
