Food Revolution Pasta, Egg & Asparagus

October 20th, 2010 No Comments Tags: ,

I just love this dish and wanted to share it with you. One thing I’d suggest is have an open mind to trying something new – eggs and pasta. I know, the first few times I heard about this sort of dish I got squeamish, because after all eggs are a breakfast food and go with toast, right? Well, yes and no, because eggs go with every meal, only limited by your imagination. First, I witness this recipe demonstrated by Mark Bitman and saw an easy recipe in The Oprah Magazine. I thought, why not, now hubby boy asks for it from time to time.


6-10 steamed asparagus spears, cut diagonally into 2 inch pieces (heated)

4-8 slices of cooked peameal bacon (Canadian back bacon), chopped (heated)

6-8 crushed garlic cloves, cooked until softened (heated)

Parmesan cheese

Olive oil

Capellini or spegattini pasta noodles

hot pepper to taste


Prepare asparagus, peameal bacon and sautéed garlic and put aside until ready. You need to time this perfectly so be on your toes!!

Boil the water for cooking the pasta, in one pot. Once the water is boiled add the pasta and cook until done. In the photo, I used rice spaghetti noodles and it tasted terrific. Strain the noodles then add the heated and cooked asparagus, bacon and garlic. Sprinkle some parmesan cheese and olive oil on the noodles then combine until the ingredients are evenly mixed. Using tongs add a serving to each dish.

Meanwhile, time your preparation of the fried eggs to be perfectly soft-medium about 1 minute after your finished the step above. Carefully add 1-2 fried eggs on top of your noodle mixture. Sprinkle parmesan cheese and chilli peppers and serve immediately piping hot.


Really folks, this is one of those yummy dishes that’s so tasty yet good for you and pretty economical as well. Move your cheese and give it a try. You’ll be glad you did!!
