Your thoughts…

  1. This sounds tasty with honey roasted turkey ham and a sour cream based sauce.

  2. It sounds great – but I’m stuck on that caramelized onion cube….Now That is interesting. I’m afraid I haven’t seen that one here, yet. Who makes it?

  3. Katie,
    You can use any other vegetable cube, I just got these so I wanted to use them :) The brand is Knorr.

  4. What a spectacular dish to start the year. Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights.

  5. I read the Tastespotting caption as “Coffee & Vanilla Turkey Spaghetti Carbonara” and thought:

    ‘Hmmm…Am I that open-minded?”

    Still looks great. Really great!
