I had one of those days last night. I was up all night writing. I wrote a lot of pages.
I am sure it is just because I am way too over tired and I should sleep.
I cooked the pasta according to the package directions. While that was boiling away I pulled out two pieces of bacon out of the freezer and set them sizzling in a skillet.
When the pasta was cooked al dente I drained it and set it aside. When the bacon was nice and crispy I pulled it out of the pan and let it dry on paper towels.
I drained off most of the bacon fat and tossed the pasta back into the skillet along with one clove of garlic, minced, the bacon and 1 cup of watercress.
Just so you know, I added 1/2 a piece of bacon to my dish – the dogs got to enjoy the other 1 1/2 pieces
When everything was warmed through, I plated the pasta and added a generous shaving of Parmesan on top.
