summer pasta when the livin’ is easy

quick, casual and delicious-summer pasta

Even when Dennis and I have spent the day working at Al Dente, the fact that we can head to the Lake House, which is only 5 minutes from our pasta factory, is an unbelievable luxury.   To top it off, as long as we remembered to grab a bag of pasta, we can have dinner ready in about 10 minutes. Last night I tossed Al Dente Egg Fettuccine with some cooked bacon, leftover green beans, extra virgin olive oil,  chives from our yard and salt that I brought back from France.    Life doesn’t get much simpler than that and, in my book, that’s what summer is all about.

    It lacks some kind of sauce if you ask me. I could definitely see some melted cheese on top of it all. Also more meat would be nice. Though I guess it wouldn’t really be “summer” pasta any more, would it?

    A recipe like this one doesn’t need sauce to have great flavor…with all those fresh summer ingredients…and, um, BACON. 😉

      summer sounds good right now, doesn’t it? Although the snow falling today is beautiful.
