How you finish this word probably says a lot about your attitude. Indeed, depending on your attitude toward healthiness, you are guaranteed to either think today's idea is terrific or terrible.
First, a little culinary math lesson. Pasta carbonara, on its own, is already awesome. Risotto, on its own, is already awesome. It turns out that awesomeness is not necessarily additive; mix these two together, and you'll end up with a mess that's considerably less awesome than either of the parts alone. No, if you want to amp up the awesomeness, you need a way of adding them together without actually mixing them. The solution is to encase the risotto in a protective shell of deep-friedness. I give you Pasta Carbonara with Risotto Meatballs:
