Breakfast Pasta

Chef Alfred Portale is best known for the elegant New American cuisine he crafts at Gotham Bar and Grill. But after he's thrown back a few, he looks to Italy.

"I make a mash-up of cacio e pepe and carbonara: I cook up some onion and bacon, add lots of pepper and toss into al dente spaghetti with some butter. A fried egg on top completes the dish," Portale says.

Sounds a little bit like a dish we made not too long ago. Breakfast pasta for dinner, anyone?
