snuggly’s bird nest [spaghetti carbonara]

Bring warm and soft… pasta.

Snuggly the Crow lives peacefully at the Undead Asylum in a little game called Dark Souls. She requests that you leave something “warm and soft” in her nest. In return for leaving her something “warm and soft”, she will reward you with an item. One of the item rewards is Twinkling Titanite, a valuable material used to craft both armor and weapons or upgrade your gear. Twinkling Titanite is also used to craft one of the most powerful weapons (arguably) in the game, the Black Knight Greataxe. So, if you’re in the market for Twinkling Titanite, you should probably pay a visit to the always friendly Snuggly the Crow.

For this recipe, I’ve created Snuggly’s bird nest with a few extra goodies… More specifically, delicious and crispy pork! I’m sure if you gave this dish to Snuggly, she’d give you something nice in return.
