{July 14, 2010}   Fettucine Carbonara with Chives, Leeks, Chicken, and Asiago Cheese!

Hello my fab readers! Tonight I made baked carbonara! It was really, really, good! Think, the goodness of carbonara, baked with chives, fresh linguine (I used fresh pasta from the grocery store and it was REALLY good), chives, leeks, chicken, and asiago cheese instead of parmesan! I really liked using the asiago instead of parmesan, because it has a bit of a really nice salty flavor. I didn’t take pictures, yes I know! However, it tastes really good! The smell is really good, you can’t wait to take out of the oven!

Fettucine Carbonara with Chives, Leeks, Chicken, and Asiago Cheese

You will need:
– 9 oz fresh fettucine

– 2 eggs (3 if you like a cream carbonara)

– 4 slices turkey bacon

– 1 leek, finely chopped

– 1/4 cup finely chopped chives

– 3/4 cup asiago cheese, plus extra

– 1 tsp garlic salt

– 2 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed

– bread crumbs

– 1 tsp black pepper

– 1 tb olive oil

– 4 slices turkey bacon (or regular bacon)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cook turkey bacon until it is crispy, about 5 minutes (make sure to flip the bacon). Take turkey bacon out of the pain, and cook leeks with the olive oil for about 5 minutes.

3. Boil the water for the fresh pasta. Add salt and pasta. Cook for about 3 minutes, then drain.

4. Pour the pasta into a greased baking dish. Pour over egg mixture and chicken and toss. Sprinkle bread crumbs and extra parmesan cheese.

5. Bake for 10 minutes.
