Pasta With Asiago Cheese Sauce

Having ham for dinner last night, I thought this dish would be a nice compliment to old Porky and a great way to use some of our Asiago cheese  we received from Italy! With a few changes to a pasta recipe I found in a Better Homes & Gardens cookbook, I have to admit it came out pretty awesome. Oh yea… One thing to add, while grating the aged Asiago Cheese…It kinda got away from me…As you can see! Of course< Kenny had to be the man and take over the grating. Macho dude he is!  ;-)

Cheese every where!! Oh my!

Cheese every where!! Oh my!

Kenny really loved the pasta and it went so well with the fresh green beans I had picked up at the flea market this week. We had a little cheese on everything (literately) including our crescent rolls! Although I could not finish off my whole plate (you know, eyes bigger than your stomach thing), husband had no problem helping me. I am really looking forward to using all of this wonderful tasting cheese in more delicious recipes in the near future.

The chilled Sangria went perfect with this meal.

Like I said, I also had green beans and we sprinkled them with some extra grated real Asiago Cheese and before I rolled up my crescent rolls, they too got a little cheese with a little dash of garlic…… Hope you enjoy and have a nice weekend!

Spaghetti With Tomato And Bacon Sauce

Today is National Spaghetti Day and I wanted to put something in a little different than spaghetti and meatballs or meat sauce. And yes, again I’m on a bacon kick! You’d think Kenny and I ate bacon all the time and I think the way to curb my eating it, is to just put in recipes that contain it, you know when you’re in the kitchen all day cooking, when it’s time to eat you’re really not all that hungry! Kenny does that all the time when he’s smoking something on the grill for us to enjoy for dinner; he sits down and does nothing but nibble, claiming he’s not very hungry.
