Spaghetti with Asparagus and Bacon – March is Noodle Month!

Oodles of noodles! March is National noodle month and I’d love to see your noodle (Pasta) recipes! Add them to the link up below!

But until then, here is one of mine. Super simple and fresh for Spring!

A little bit of bacon. Some fresh, Spring asparagus. And an you have a delicious mouthful of noodles!

What you need:

  • 6 slices of bacon chopped
  • 1 cup of asparagus tips (save the stems for soup)
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 – 3 cloves of crushed garlic
  • 3 cups cook spaghetti noodles

How to Do it:

Cook the bacon until its crisp. Drain off most of the fat (keep about 1 to 2 Tablespoons) and stir in the garlic and the butter. Cook, stirring, on medium-low heat until the garlic starts to soften. Add the asparagus and cook gently until it is bright green and still crisp, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the pasta and heat through. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve hot!

Makes 4 to 6 servings
