Fettucine Carbonara with Roasted Tomatoes

I found this recipe on Our Life in the Kitchen over a year ago and it's one of my favorites. I had never had carbonara before, which is a pasta sauce based with bacon, eggs and cream, but I absolutely love it. I have adapted the recipe a bit to make it a little healthier and have substituted bacon instead of pancetta. I love the creaminess the egg creates in this dish. It's so simple, but so tasty. The roasted tomatoes also make this dish great.
