Bacon & Egg Asparagus Spaghetti #Foodie Friday

Yum
Bacon & Egg Asparagus Pasta
Bacon & Egg Asparagus Pasta

Do you still have hard boiled eggs left over from Easter? I was getting tired of egg salad, but being a good New England girl I couldn't waste the eggs, so I started thinking about what goes with eggs, why bacon, of course! Besides eggs what food do I think of in the Spring: asparagus... voila! 

My family really loved this dish... putting a little bacon in anything seems to make it an easy sell, but even my husband who is not too big on hard boiled eggs loved it.

Enjoy,
Diane

preparation time: 20 minutes                                Serves: 4 - 6

Ingredients:

6 to 8 ounces of chopped bacon
1 chopped bunch of asparagus
4 to 6 crumbled hard boiled eggs
1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese
12 ounces of spaghetti
salt and pepper to taste


Directions:

1) Bring a large sauce pan of well salted water to a boil for the pasta. 

2) While the pasta is cooking. Sauté the bacon in the oil until it starts to get brown then add the asparagus and cook it until the bacon is browned and the asparagus is still firm but cooked. 

3) Add pasta to the skillet and mix. When the pasta is coated with the oil add the eggs, cheese, salt and pepper.

  8. My family and I love eggs and asparagus together - we even dip steamed asparagus in soft boiled eggs - so this recipe sounds perfect for us. I love it when something that looks and sounds delicious uses up leftovers too :) This week I've shared my Beef Stroganoff. Thank you for hosting and have a lovely weekend :)

    1. Yes, I feel really good using everything up in the fridge. I heard a terrible statistic that Americans throw away 40 % of the food they buy... I hope it is incorrect. We don't. Probably too much over buying. Have you been in our supersized stores like Costco?

  10. Your breakfast spaghetti dish sounds great. We used to save spaghetti for a breakfast frittata, which is very similar to yours. It was always a big hit.

    Thank you for hosting. I brought a salad with steak, blueberries, feta cheese and toasted pecans. Perfect for those of us watching our calories and carbs. Hope you have a lovely New England weekend.

  26. We will be getting asparagus from our local farmers soon, so I am always on the lookout for great recipes to use them with. This will be on the top of the list. Two of my favorites - bacon and asparagus. I am not a fan of eggs, so I will give those to Big!

    Thanks for sharing this great recipe at the In and Out of the Kitchen Link party! I am so glad you dropped it by!
