Some good crusty bread and a salad makes for a superb dinner!

Ingredients

1/2 lb Spaghetti cooked according the the package directions, drained and set aside reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water.

4 Strips of bacon chopped and cooked to your liking, reserving 1 tablespoon of the bacon grease.

4 cloves of garlic, finely minced
1/2 cup frozen peas.
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1 large egg, beaten
Basil sprig for garnish

Directions

In the skillet that you browned the bacon, add the 1 tbs bacon grease and the garlic, cook for 30 seconds then add the pasta, peas, pasta water and salt & pepper to taste, cook for 2 more minutes then add the beaten egg, this gives it a really nice creaminess, cook another minute, transfer to a platter and sprinkle with the parmesan and top with the fresh sprig of basil. Enjoy!!

I have always enjoyed cooking, since I started making mashed potatoes for our family dinners at the age of 10. My cooking style is throwing together what is simple, fresh and tasty, also preparing tried and true family recipes. I am on a quest for that perfect crusty bread that is simple to make for the home cook. I am an avid collector of all things vintage, I make up "vignettes" daily for fun and love to share my decorating ideas with everyone. When I'm not working, cooking and decorating I love to be with family, friends, my horses and my two french bulldogs, so stop by here often, there will always be something new to look at. Tammy
