5. Pasta Carbonara with Edamame
There are competing theories about the origins of pasta carbonara: Some say that it was a dish cooked in the mountains by Italian charcoal makers, while others say that the abundant use of cracked black pepper in the dish resembles flakes of coal. Either way, carbonara is an amazing pasta dish. The cooked pasta is tossed with rendered bacon, browned onion, and garlic, then gets a slick coating of beaten eggs and parmesan. It may seem strange to pour raw eggs on top of cooked pasta, but the residual heat from the pasta cooks the eggs and turns them into an addictively rich coating for the noodles.
