It hasn’t been a secret that I have been less than thrilled with winter. To add insult to injury, my stove was shut off for a week due to a gas leak. While it was out of commission (during a record-breaking snowfall) all I could think about was all of the things that I wanted to cook and bake. Due to all of the craziness from the last snow storm the public transit system has been crippled and it’s taking me on average about an hour to make a 4.5 mile commute. Needless to say, when I finally get home, I am not in the mood to cook. Until last night. All day I had been craving some super-duper comfort food and decided that I would whip up one of my all time favorite (and easy) dinners. Pasta with bacon and asparagus.
Pasta with Bacon and Asparagus
It starts with bacon, as all amazing things do. I went ahead and chopped up and fried an entire package, although you probably only need about half a package (as for the other half, I have plans for a baked potato soup).
