Pasta, Pasta, Pasta

Welcome to Friday's Five Favorites.
This Friday we're featuring our top five pasta dishes.  I love to cook with pasta, it's fast, cheap, versatile, filling and of course yummy!  I like to keep a supply of a lot different kinds in my  pantry, where it stores for a long time.  You've got to love pasta. 

The first dish is a new post, that honestly I'm surprise it took me this long to post it. 

Bacon and Egg Spaghetti

When we got married, this was the only dish my husband knew how to cook (Ramen doesn't count). Good thing I loved it, I love bacon (doesn't everyone)! He learned how to make it on his LDS mission in Italy. Needless to say it has been a family favorite! My daughters always wanted to serve it for team dinners when they were playing sports in high school. All the girls liked it.
  • 12 ounces bacon
  • 12 ounces spaghetti
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper as desired
Cut bacon into 1 inch pieces, cutting though all the slices in one cut (kitchen scissors help). Boil spaghetti according to directions. Cook bacon until brown. Whip eggs in a small mixing bowl with fork. When the spaghetti and bacon are done cooking, drain the spaghetti and return to it to its pans. Quickly add hot bacon (with grease) and eggs, mix together allowing the heat from the pasta and bacon to cook the eggs. If the eggs don't cook completely, put the pan back on the stove at a low heat stirring to get the eggs to finish cooking.  Add cheese, salt (think six eggs) and pepper. This dish needs a lot of pepper.

Four other favorite pasta dishes.

Baked Pasta

Baked Pasta is perfect for potlucks and taking dinner in. So much easier than Lasagna. But just as good.  Go here for Baked Pasta

Turkey and Craisins Pasta Salad

This tangy sweet salad dressing reminds me of the house dressing served at the Hug-Hes Cafe on their Chicken Pasta Salad.  This is a great recipe to make after Thanksgiving using leftover turkey and cranberry sauce (which goes in the dressing). But we love this recipe all year round, using chicken sometimes instead of turkey.  Go here to try Turkey and Craisins Pasta Salad.   


Mediterranean Pasta

Feta cheese, artichoke hearts, black olives and tomatoes need I say more!
The refreshing use of rosemary makes this dish stand out from all the tomato and oregano dishes.
For a trip to the Mediterranean go here.

Tortellini, Bean and Pesto Soup

Pesto, Pesto, Pesto! If you love pesto then this is a recipe for you.  Tortellini is a fun change for the noodle in a soup.  This soup is meatless but very filling.  Go here to try Tortellini, Bean and Pesto Soup.

I hope you will have fun trying a new pasta dish!
