I made this with spaghetti squash instead of pasta this morning. It was divine.
I have made this dish for over 20 ppl in the last year and it's an instant favorite each time I introduce someone new to it. You can make a much more simplified version by cooking the pasta & bacon (or sausage) the night before. *hint* When cooking the pasta, add a clove of garlic to the water and it will add extra flavor to your noodles. Then when you are ready for breakfast the next morning, just pour a touch of oil in your pan & brown up some garlic. Toss in your cooked meat & pasta, I add salt & pepper and in a separate dish I scramble some eggs and cilantro together & toss it over the warmed noodle. Then just cook the eggs mixing it all in for a few minutes till done. Just before i serve it I add a shredded Asiago/Parmesan cheese blend on top & everyone seems to really love it. For the GHHHHAAAALIC & meat lovers in the house this simplified version of this dish is a big winner.
The whole family really liked it. We saw a re-run of a food network show that featured this dish from Hugo's. I said we should try it and looked it up here(not expecting to find it) and voilla ! I bumped up the garlic, we all love garlic, but otherwise made as written. Thanks for posting.
a little bland but very good and clean. added chopped pancetta and italian bread crumbs
