I love my family and enjoy spending time with them! We tried to have kids for 8 years and finally were blessed to adopt to wonderful children from S. Korea so I'm passionate about adoption. Now that they are getting a little bit older I homeschool them and we have wonderful adventures learning, right now we are studying all about Egypt and we are even mummifying a chicken!
My sister in law Connie, is a wonderful mommy, cook, friend, cake decorator, and the list goes on because she's good at everything. If you want to take a peek at her cakes click here (believe me you want to peek at them).
She's kinda got it going on if you know what I mean! So when she told me about this recipe I just knew it was going to be a huge hit with our family. Even my veggie hating hubby approved of it and agreed we need to have it a couple of times per month. Wooohooo he's eating some veggies!!!
4 slices bacon, sliced crosswise into 1/2-inch strips
4 medium yellow squash (8 ounces each), quartered lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup grated Asiago cheese, plus more for serving
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente, according to package instructions. Reserve 1 cup pasta water; drain pasta, and return to pot.
I used a 16oz bag so made a double recipe!
While pasta is cooking, heat a large skillet over medium. Add bacon, and cook until browned and crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain (leave bacon fat in skillet).
Place skillet over medium-high heat. Add squash and garlic to fat in skillet; season with salt and pepper, and toss well. Cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until squash begins to soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Uncover, and continue to cook until liquid is evaporated and squash is tender, 2 to 3 minutes more.
Add cream and cooked pasta to skillet; toss well, and cook until cream begins to thicken. Remove from heat; stir in Asiago, and add enough reserved pasta water to create a sauce that coats pasta. Serve topped with reserved bacon and more cheese.
