Bacon and Asparagus Pasta

 

Welcome to month #4 of our Monthly Ingredient Challenge!  This is the one post each month where I take a break from DIY and Design.  If you’re new to this, the challenge is once a month,  11 other bloggers and myself each make a recipe using 1 specific ingredient.     This month the chosen ingredient is bacon!  My family’s favorite!  In case you missed any of our previous months, you can catch up here: #1 was cilantro, #2 apples and #3 was peanut butter.

For this month, I had a completely different recipe in mind.  I first made my grandmother’s German Potato Salad, which was always a favorite.  One ingredient in the recipe was MSG, so I decided to substitute turmeric instead (for obvious health reasons) which turned the entire salad a weird yellow/green.  My husband asked if it was nuclear potato salad.  So I decided to go a different route and share this recipe that  I make very often.

This bacon and asparagus pasta is a recipe the whole family loves.  It’s quick enough to make for a weeknight meal, but still healthy and filling.  I prefer to use the whole grain penne pasta, but you could swap that out for your favorite.
