Ramp and Anchovy Carbonara Pasta

WOW. I didn’t expect this last minute – toss together side dish – to turn out so delicious! But this Ramp and Anchovy Carbonara Pasta is definitely going into our spring meal rotation.

That is…. as long as the ramps last……. when the ramps are done it’s always such a sad time 🙁

Of course I made this with gluten-free pasta, but you are welcome to use regular old wheat pasta if that’s your thing.

It’s shocking how well the flavors of Ramps and Anchovies go together. It’s almost like they were made for each other.

For this dish I use just a few ramp bulbs and several hand fulls of lightly chopped ramp greens, if you don’t have lots of greens you can also use some baby spinach.
