This Sloppy Joes recipe will take you back to those “melt in your mouth” childhood days when you didn’t stop eating until your stomach hurt.  Even my wife mentioned she felt like Igor in the Disney Classic, “Ratatouille”, when his eyes lit up like light bulbs as he proceeded to drop his pen to the floor after he took his first bite.  “It’s that good”, she said.  So without further ado or more bragging, I give you another I give you Sloppy Joes!

Pesto with Almonds

Gotta love Pesto with Almonds.  I believe it’s traditionally made with Pine Nuts but even Walnuts are often substituted.  So it doesn’t really matter what you use, just pick your favorite and follow this recipe to a T because it is fantastic.  Just know that I cut this recipe in half when I filmed it in the video.

Pasta Carbonara

The Best Pasta Carbonara is Americanized

Pasta Carbonara is a delicious Italian recipe that can virtually be made with just about any pasta.  In this recipe I’m using Penne but feel free to substitute Spaghetti, Linguine or whatever else your favorite pasta might be.  One of the other main ingredients is Pancetta.  If you don’t know what this is, the best way to describe it is comparing it to bacon.  It’s generally around the same cut of meat and it’s treated the same.  The major difference is it’s a thicker slice more like ham.  But the flavor, as you can imagine just really sets this dish off.  The Carbonara sauce itself is just egg yolks with a dash of pepper and fresh grated Parmesan Cheese.  So if you think about the bulk of these ingredients with a clove of chopped garlic and some sliced leak, which is pretty much a mild spring onion, then your really talking about a great recipe!

Pasta Carbonara Nazi’s!

This Pasta Carbonara is one of those recipes that every single Italian in the world thinks they know about.  I’ve had everyone and they’re dog try to give me advice on how to make this differently and every single opinion has been completely different from the next.  So I look at this like a Hamburger.  Am I American?  Yes!  Did I invent the Hamburger?  No!  Are there hundreds of different ways to make one?  Absolutely, so don’t be scared to dive right in and try this version of this recipe because it’s delicious and you won’t regret it!
