Wow--I cannot believe it is already November! The season of cooking is upon us! In honor of this time of year, I am hosting my first "Recipe Challenge." I am going to present you all with a recipe. I'd love for you guys to make this recipe and then either link your blog (using the MckLinky at the bottom of this post) to mine or come back to comment on what you and your family thought of it, discuss any additions or substitutions you used, what you would change about it, etc.
The first recipe is for Chicken Carbonara. I would love for everyone to make it this week if you can! Don't forget to link up or comment on how it turned out! I'm planning to make it on Wednesday, so I'll post pictures of it then. Happy Cooking!
1 package spaghetti noodles
4 ounces bacon (diced)

1 1/2 cups heavy cream
2 chicken breasts (cut into strips)
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
salt and pepper to taste

Cook spaghetti in boiling water for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in large saucepan, saute the bacon until golden and crumble. Drain off some of the drippings; add butter, chicken strips and onion. Cook until chicken is tender.
Drain spaghetti and place into pan with chicken. Add cream, salt and pepper, stir well over heat until just boiling. Add the cheese and egg yolks. Turn off heat and stir well. Place on a dish, top with chopped parsley and serve immediately.
