Bacon Basil Pasta
4 strips of bacon
1/2 lb. bucati, cooked al dente
1/4 c. heavy cream
1/4 c. chicken stock
1 tsp. basil (I would tear up some fresh basil if I made it again)
Parmesan (I ended up dumping a whole bunch in to try to alleviate the blandness)
Cook the bacon & drain on paper towels. In 1 tsp. of the bacon grease (maybe more would be better?), heat the spaghetti through. Add cream, stock & basil. Simmer 6-8 minutes. Season with pepper. Sprinkle with parmesan. Maybe some lemon would help?
