Here is a quick pasta dish I threw together using the ingredients in my fridge. It took no more than 20 minutes. A perfect dish for a work night meal.
Bacon and Asparagus Pasta
- 1/2 lb raw bacon, diced
- 1 lb asparagus, woody stems removed
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 lb pasta of your choice
- Alfredo sauce
- Parmesan cheese to garnish
In a skillet, saute the chopped bacon until crispy. At the same time, cook the pasta in salted water until al dente. Drain off all but a tablespoon of bacon grease. Add the asparagus and garlic; saute until the asparagus is bright green and tender. Combine the crispy bacon, asparagus, pasta, and the desired amount of alfredo sauce. Heat until warmed through. Garnish with Parmesan cheese. Serves 2 to 3.
