I didn't care for this. The mushrooms were gross and the rest was bland and dry.

Added some cheese, extra lemon zest, and some breadcrumbs!

This carbonara turned out really bland. I added some seasoning mix that we use for everyday seasoning and that helped, but it still wasn't very good. If I try making this again, I'll probably leave in more of the bacon grease and add some garlic.

I was super excited for this one. I think the consistency of the sauce turned out like it was supposed to but overall it tasted super bland (except for a hint of lemon)?
