The quickest way to make $100.00+ is to skip a week of grocery shopping. With all the recipe resources on the Internet, one can always find a recipe for whatever ingredients that are available. I made this spaghetti for lunch. It will also serve as my lunch for several days...cha ching...I was pleasantly surprised with the results of this super easy recipe; however, I made a few changes...fried the bacon and drained most of the grease off the bacon before adding the oil. The thought of all that grease was making my arteries a little nervous. I also added salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese to taste. What should I do with my extra $100+??
Spaghetti with Bacon
I got this recipe from allrecipes.com
1 pkg spaghetti (16 ounce)
1/4 Cup olive oil
8 pieces slices bacon, cut into 1/4 inch
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 Cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley
1.Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the spaghetti, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
2.Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the bacon, and cook until the bacon has begun to shrink, about 3 minutes. Add the garlic, and continue cooking and stirring until the garlic has softened, and the bacon is crisp, about 5 minutes. Toss the drained pasta with the bacon, oil, and parsley to serve.
