    Iron Chef - Fat Cat's Note:

    This is a recipe that I found online. I have modified this recipe slightly by adding bacon, mushroom and sunflower seed. It works equaly well with chorizo instead of bacon. Sunflower seed is optional, it gives a bit of texture to the dish.

      Enjoyed the flavors. I used Walnuts, sun-dried tomatoes in oil and pulsedthe pesto in the food processor. Cooked the other ingredients and tossed with some spiral pasta. Made for "I recommend" tag game.

      I also added my garlic to the onions, - oh, I added an onion! - and in fact did not make a pesto, cooked off the onion, bacon, added mushrooms, and added the finely sliced sun-dried tomatoes and basil close to the end. I also used pine-nuts, since thats what I had. Tossed it with wholewheat fusilli and my DH enjoyed this so much, he had seconds...almost unheard of!!!! Thank you for a very nice recipe!!! Made for PAC Spring 2008
