I think if I liked brussels sprouts, this would look delicious . . . and simple and quick.

Spaghetti with Bacon, Brussels Sprouts and Artichokes yield: 2 entrees, 4 sides

Ingredients: 1/2 lb. spaghetti 4 slices thick sliced pepper bacon 1/2 onion, diced 2 cloves garlic, finely minced 1/2 lb. brussels sprouts 6 1/2 oz. jar marinated artichoke hearts 1/2 cup grated parmigiano reggiano cheese salt, to taste

Directions: Bring large pot of water to boil. Salt water and add in pasta. Cook to al dente, drain and set aside.

In the meantime, in a deep skillet, cook bacon slices to your liking. Drain on paper towels. Pour off excess bacon grease leaving 2 tablespoons. {If your bacon didn’t give off enough grease, make up the difference in olive oil.} Saute onions, garlic, brussels sprouts and salt until tender, about 5 minutes. Chop bacon slices into smaller pieces. Stir in artichoke hearts, bacon, hot pasta and cheese. Toss together, taste and adjust seasonings. If you find the dish is on the dry side, stir in some reserved pasta water or heavy cream.

Back to real life tomorrow . . . I haven’t sewn with my Tuesday buddies in TWO WEEKS!!!!  I think the dogs will suffer from Mommy withdrawal!
