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.
