Pasta with Bacon

"Pasta with Bacon!"   Need I say more?  Everything goes with bacon and everything goes with pasta. Put the two together and you have made a perfect dish.

This recipe came to me from Blog Chef, one of the best sources of delicious recipes on the web.  I had to try it and I did - minus the olives.  Delicious!

Who could resist?  Not me.  To get you started I will list the ingredients for you and then you can click here to get the particulars.
1lb linguini
8 slices bacon
2 tablespoons olive oil
12 garlic cloves (minced)
¾ cup sliced kalamata olives
The juice of 1 lemon
pepper (to taste)
½ cup fresh basil (chopped)
½ cup fresh Italian parsley (chopped)
grated parmesan cheese (for serving)
To quote Blog Chef,
"This delicious recipe combines bacon and pasta with garlic, lemon juice, olives, and various herbs. This pasta dish is a nice change up from normally spaghetti or alfredo. The most important part of flavoring this dish is the bacon grease."

Get cooking - you will enjoy!

Meanwhile .... keep it simple and make it real.
