Recipe Friday: Main Course

This is a dish my mum threw together on night from leftovers and became a family hit!

Being a family recipes none of the amount are exact.

Some chopped bacon
Some chopped chicken breast
Bow-tie pasta
spoonfuls or so of garlic
Bit of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
shredded Parmesan and Romano Cheese

In a saucepan on med heat put in the bacon. When the bacon is brown drain off the grease. Add EVOO, garlic, and chicken. Turn down heat to med-low and stir occasional.

Put pasta water on to boil. When water comes to a boil add pasta. Cook pasta to the package specs. Drain and add to saucepan when chicken is cooked. Stir pasta into contents of saucepan.
Take off heat. Stir in shredded cheese to taste.

Plate and serve with a white wine.

It's an easy recipe to tinker with, and you can substitute ham for the bacon or not use it at all. I've also made it without the pasta, with seafood instead of chicken, and with different cheeses. Have fun playing with it and let me know what you think.
