    Ingy's Note:

    Lots of sauteed yellow squash in this rich, carbonara-inspired sauce offsets the indulgent bacon topping. Parmesan can stand in for the Asiago cheese, if you like. Recipe from Martha Stewart's Everyday Food.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • coarse salt and pepper
    • 8 ounces fusilli
    • 4 slices bacon, sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch strips
    • 4 medium yellow squash, quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise (8 ounces each)
    • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 1/4 cup grated asiago cheese, plus more for serving

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente, according to package instructions. Reserve 1 cup pasta water; drain pasta, and return to pot.
    2. 2
      While pasta is cooking, heat a large skillet over medium. Add bacon, and cook until browned and crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain (leave bacon fat in skillet).
    3. 3
      Place skillet over medium-high heat. Add squash and garlic to fat in skillet; season with salt and pepper, and toss well. Cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until squash begins to soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Uncover, and continue to cook until liquid is evaporated and squash is tender, 2 to 3 minutes more.
    4. 4
      Add cream and cooked pasta to skillet; toss well, and cook until cream begins to thicken. Remove from heat; stir in Asiago, and add enough reserved pasta water to create a sauce that coats pasta. Serve topped with reserved bacon and more cheese.

      Great recipe! I deglazed the pan with white wine before adding the cream, and also tossed in some fresh lemony thyme. Thanks for posting Ingy!
