Chorizo Carbonara: I made this recipe a couple weeks ago and it was awesome. Most definitely not for the vegetarians out there. It has a little heat to it but if you do not like spicy food, you can probably find some not-spicy chorizo at your store. I substituted some lactose free whole milk in for the cream and it was still delicious. When I was mixing the egg and milk mixture into the pasta, I thought "well this cannot possibly be good" but by the time I got it the table, the sauce had coated the pasta nicely. I topped it with some parmesan cheese. Also, this recipe was super quick to make!
Creamy Pasta with Leeks, Peas and Parmesan: This recipe was passed along to me and I made it last week. I doctored it up a bit, using lactose free whole milk (and a bit of light cream) instead of heavy cream. I also added parmesan, and some garlic powder. It was really good!
