Listen, it’s not every day that we try a new recipe and are truly impressed with the results. 

If I’m cooking, it’s usually due to user error. 

If the hubs is in charge, the results are usually better, but he mostly prefers his own cooking. 

Since he’s a classically trained chef, we don’t often disagree on that. 

But this – this one pot wonder – was muy delicioso. 

And we weren’t mad about having less dishes to clean, either. 

Why You Should Make Chicken-Bacon-Ranch Carbonara: 

This uber comforting pasta dish from Megan Marlowe’s new cookbook, “Incredible One Pot Cooking“,  is good eats, people, with bacon, chicken, and lots of other goodies. It was slightly reminiscent of a pasta dish I’ve been ordering for years at the Cheesecake Factory. 

Except, this one might be even better. 

It’s less greasy, which makes it easier on the tummy, so you can just keep eating… and eating. 

Nobody would blame you if you licked the bowl clean. 

The process is very clearly explained in the recipe, too, which walks you through how to use one pan to cook the entire thing.
