Quick Bacon Pasta


Cook: 25
Yield:

If I had to pick one ingredient to cook with for the rest of my life, then that would definitely be pasta because I just adore it! :)

This is one of the simpler recipes, but still so tasty and filling. If you’re a beginner cook, I suggest you start with pasta. That’s just what my beginnings looked like and it was a lot of fun. :) 

Everything goes along well with pasta and for that very reason I love preparing it often – I’m rediscovering countless options and enjoying in creation of each new recipe.

Who of you adores pasta, just as I do? :)

TIPS & TRICKS

• if you have a water kettle, heat the water for pasta cooking in it to reduce total cooking time

• replace pasta with potato gnocchi

• instead of silverskin onions you can use purple onions

• replace linguine with penne/fusilli, add additional cheese on the top (gouda, edamer) and bake it all together in the oven

• serve fresh lettuce alongside this dish

• if you want a vegetarian version of this pasta, replace bacon with zucchini – preparation is the same, use butter to prepare zucchini
