Fusilli alla carbonara

Uneventful day of classes and reading.

In the evening I go to the girls' dorm to cook pasta. For the occasion I invested in a 30-zloty pot of sufficient capacity. I also bought Polish pasta (fusilli to be precise), not without serious reservations (will be be made of durum wheat?) about its quality.

I also bought eggs and bacon (the closest I could find to Italian pancetta or guanciale) to make carbonara.

The end result is actually pretty close to the real thing, and the girls like it quite a lot!
