My favourite sort of meal - quick and easy pasta

A new recipe today! We have had a couple of great days here in Wellington, which gives me the chance to take the dog for big walks. This afternoon we went so far that I needed a decent dinner, only I don't have much food in the house because I've been a little broke. So what to do when there is not much food and you are really hungry? You make an impromptu pasta dish. This one is based on carbonara, so the sauce features whisked egg and parmesan. It only takes as long to make as the pasta takes to cook, and it is yummy and filling. It would be even better with the addition of some cooked chicken or bacon, and a salad with lettuce and cherry tomatoes would go really well too. Shame I didn't manage to take better pictures.
