I always like to try and re-create the meals I've enjoyed on my travels, and this Spaghetti Carbonara not only brought back some wonderful memories of Italy, it was so quick and easy to prepare that my husband and I could spend less time in the kitchen and more time reminiscing. It uses only 5 ingredients, and it's ready in just 20 minutes.

Whether you're trying to grab a bite during the middle of a hectic workday or trying to feed yourself while managing a household, most of us find ourselves making lunch choices based on convenience rather than nutrition -- or even taste, for that matter.
