Yummy kinda-Carbonara pasta

Well, the eggs are in the pasta (homemade, freshly rolled) but the cream and bacon are saucing this puppy up. Plus kale, a leek, scallions, black olives, lots of Parm... Umami was everywhere; we liked it! www.em-i-lis.com

Let's give a huzzah to Pope Francis! Did you see that beautiful photo of him embracing the disfigured man in Vatican City this week? The man has a genetic disease which causes tons of painful tumors to grow all over his face, neck and head (whole body? not sure), and the Pope's hug was the picture of christian grace. Walking the walk, this man is!
