Pasta with Snap Peas and Bacon
I placed about 1/2 cup of chopped bacon into a large saute pan with some chopped onion and garlic scapes. Once the bacon was beginning to crisp and the onions translucent, I added some chopped yellow squash and the snap peas. This was cooked until just warmed through completely. After draining my pasta, I added this to the pan and stirred to combine with the vegetables and bacon. I then added a combination of grated parmesan, gouda parrana and mozzarrella cheese to the pasta and stirred until melted. After pouring the pasta into a serving dish I finished it off with a bit more of the cheese mixture and some chopped fresh basil.
This dish was great, even I had seconds, although I think I was lucky to have gotten any at all! My daughter loved it so much that she pretty much ate every bit of it and there really wasn't any leftovers, I think that her final bowl count was six!
