Bacon Asparagus Pasta/ Belkys

(WSVN) - If you’re looking for a quick and easy dinner Italian style, you’re in luck! That’s what’s cooking, as we grab a Bite with Belkys.

The Chef: Belkys Nerey
The Dish: Bacon Asparagus Pasta

8 oz. uncooked pasta
8 or more strips of uncooked bacon, diced
8 oz. fresh asparagus, ends trimmed and cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 cup dry white wine (to taste)
1/2 cup grated or flaked Parmesan cheese

Method of Preparation:

  • Cook the pasta in a large pot of generously salted water. Cook until al dente.
  • Add bacon to a medium sauté pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until crispy.
  • Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add asparagus to the pan and sauté in the bacon grease for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally until cooked.
  • Remove asparagus with a slotted spoon and set aside with the bacon.
  • Slowly add the white wine to deglaze the pan, scraping the bottom to pick up all the delicious brown bits.
  • Continue cooking for 3-4 minutes or until the wine has reduced by about half.
  • When the pasta is cooked, drain it. Then, add the asparagus and bacon, and give it a final toss.

To Plate: Serve in large bowl with grated Parmesan. Enjoy!
