In the  meantime, if you are a gluten lover like me and can indulge, make this bread!

This dish was designed specially for a new client of mine. My boyfriend doesn’t like shrimp so I really leaned in to recipe testing on this one and took full advantage of any opportunity to eat them. This carbonara actually convinced him that shrimp is pretty great! The combination of sweet pancetta, creamy parmesan and fresh herbs is tough to beat.
