Creamy Bacon and Egg Pasta

Today has been a pretty good Tuesday.

Work was normal.

Lunch was leftovers from last night and delicious – mini meatloaves, mashed potatoes, broccoli with carrots and onions. I also had another yogurt bowl like yesterday with strawberries, flax, pecan meal and cinnamon. So good – my new favorite snack!

I had 2 options for dinner and when I asked Nick if he wanted the higher or lower calorie option, he chose higher.

As for the pasta, I kind of made it up as I went, but it turned out really good!

We had a salad on the side, too:

  • local mixed greens
  • North Carolina strawberries
  • red onion
  • dressing of olive oil, dijon, raspberry vinegar, salt, pepper

Now back to the pasta.

I wanted something creamy. And I wanted to use some of our market bacon.

I cooked some whole wheat linguine in some salted water and started cooking some diced bacon in a skillet.

While the pasta and bacon cooked, I mixed 1/4 cup of ricotta cheese with 2 Tbsp parmesan, crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper in the bottom of a large bowl.

After the bacon was crisped, I took it out to drain on a paper towel and cracked in 2 eggs to cook.

When the pasta was cooked, I added it to the cheese mixture in the bowl plus about 1/2 cup of the pasta water and mixed it all together.

Then I stirred in the bacon pieces, plated the pasta and topped it with an egg! IMG_9219

I actually overcooked the eggs just a bit – they weren’t as runny as we normally like them – but the combination was fabulous!

The perfect bite.

Egg. Bacon. Pasta. Cheese.

Pretty good meal for a Tuesday.

 

We just got back from walking Maggie and are getting ready to watch LOST! Nite :)
