But I digress…back to the pasta! Begin by cooking up your bacon and starting the wine sauce, and once that is underway it’s time to bring on the pasta. You start it the usual way in a pot of salted water, and let it go until it just starts to get bendy – about 5 minutes or so. Now be brave and drain it, because we are going to finish cooking it in that wine sauce, with a little extra wine added for good measure. Once the pasta is cooked to your liking, you’re going to stir in a little cream and some parmesan, sprinkle the bacon on top, add a little more parmesan that you have shaved with your handy vegetable peeler, and you are ready to roll.
And just for fun, see if your lucky fellow dining companions can figure out the secret ingredient. It’s always good to keep folks on their toes. :)
