Zucchini-Bacon Pasta Toss

"A quick, savory side dish that includes veggies and starch in one with enough bacon and cheese that it may make a meat unnecessary. Its healthier cooked in olive oil but if you want to indulge substitute bacon grease. Prep time does not include cooking the bacon."

ingredients

directions

  • Heat olive oil in a very large skillet (I like to use my cast iron chicken fryer), and begin to saute onion on medium-high heat.
  • When onion is half cooked add squash and saute, stirring frequently until onion is browned and squash is nearly cooked.
  • Add bacon, Parmesan, and black pepper. Cover and let rest 3-5 minutes to soften cheese.
  • Toss with hot pasta and 1/4 cup Asiago cheese. Turn into serving dish. Top with remaining Asiago Cheese.

    This is delicious!! It was great warm, cold, and re-heated as leftovers :) I used zucchini and yellow squash, substituted fresh mozzarella for the asiago cheese, and added one small can sliced black olives. It was very simple and quick to make...it makes a lot so I'm glad it was good because my husband and I were eating leftovers for days!! Makes for a great main dish or side dish...thanks for a great recipe!!

    This was great! Made for Spring 2008 PAC and glad I picked this. Made with rainbow rotini since that is what I had in the pantry and it turned out great. My DH was running a little late from work so this got done before he got home and cooled off so was a warm/cool salad; it is just as good cold!! Will be making this summer for family get-togethers since they like zucchini too (unlike DH). Thanks!!
