.: Classic Rock

Iron Maiden formed in 1975, in Leyton, East London.  So, after 43 years of  success, I think we can call them classic rock.

I’ve seen them live 3 times and I can say their show is really great fun. So I am dedicating to them a classic “rocking” dish: carbonara.

Recipe (for 1):

– linguine pasta
– 50 gr bacon in cubes – pancetta (o guanciale) a cubetti
– 1 egg – 1 uovo
– grated parmigiano-reggiano
– salt – sale
– pepper – pepe

While pasta is being cooked in the salted water, you can warm the bacon in a bit of oil, in a pan, and beat the egg with the cheese and a bit of pepper

Mentre cuocete la pasta, scaldate la pancetta in poco olio e sbattete l’uovo con il parmigiano grattugiato e un pizzico di pepe.

Quando la pasta è pronta, unitela alla pancetta e aggiungete infine l’uovo.


When linguine are ready, add ‘em to the bacon in the pan and blend; then add the egg-cheese mixture and it’s done

Maybe carbonara is not a healthy recipe, but you can cook it once in a while, and be happy!

Don’t waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up, make your stand
And realize you’re living in the golden years

When are you sure a song is a classic ? When someone covers it. And I think this rendition by Ryan Adams truly does justice to a great song.
