Here’s the easiest way to come up with a great recipe: start with something that’s good all by itself. Then, add a bunch of other stuff that makes it even better.
Sounds confusing? Well, here, I’ll show you.
Let’s start with ravioli. That’s a pretty simple, tasty dish that it’s hard to mess up. I mean, all you have to do is heat them up with some tomato sauce, and you’ve got a pretty good meal right there.
But we don’t just want pretty good – we want great. So instead of plain tomato sauce, we’re going to make them with a carbonara sauce. That’s a fancy pasta sauce made with egg, parmesan, and bacon, which turns ordinary spaghetti into art. If you put it together with ravioli instead, you’ve already got yourself a double whammy.
