Pasta! A simple, easy and cheap recipe.

Last night for dinner I planned to warm up some left over stew that we had the night before but also wanted to throw together a little something on the side just in case someone wasn’t in the mood for leftovers.  What I threw together was a hit and everyone ended up eating it instead of the stew.  It was so simple and cheap (I had every ingredient at home to make it).


1 box pasta.  I like angel hair, but any will do.

1 package of bacon

3/4 cup (a stick and a half) of butter

3/4 cup of Asiago cheese (or grated parmesan)

Garlic!  As much as you want.  I use a whole head.

Optional: Parmesan shavings as a garnish


In a pan fry your bacon and set aside.

In a pot cook your pasta til al dente.

While your pasta is cooking add your butter and garlic to a pan and simmer for about 10 minutes until the garlic is tender.

Add your pasta to the butter and garlic and cook for a couple of minutes so that the pasta absorbs the butter.

Add bacon and  Asiago and serve.

So simple!
