Pasta with cheese and bacon

Pasta with cheese and bacon

Put water (more) to boil, and when it boils, add the pasta and salt. Boil for about 15-20 minutes (depending on how you want them). They leak, if necessary.

Cut the bacon into small pieces and fry for a few minutes in a little oil. Grate 150 g of cheese and telemeau on a large grater and mix with eggs and bacon.

Pour the composition into a 20 x 32 cm tray, greased with butter. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese (grated). Place in the preheated oven over low heat until golden brown (about 45 minutes). It should be checked after 20-30 minutes and eventually turned over.


Wholemeal pasta with melted cheese sauce

I got a package of pasta made from wholemeal flour, good and, if it's correct what nutritionists say, a bit healthier than those made from white flour. You can also find them (not necessarily this brand but there are dozens of other brands as good) in almost any supermarket. I made a simple and fast sauce for them, & # 8222simple & # 8221 and & # 8222rapid & # 8221 being the characteristics that determined me to make a sauce based on melted cheese. I don't kill myself for melted cheese, I know it's not the perfect food, on the contrary (I mean industrial melted cheese), but sometimes, when you're in a hurry and you don't have anything else at hand, it can be a solution. There it is:

Easter, a kind of very thin spaghetti. You can find them in various forms.

I still had a cup of sweet cream in the fridge. Insufficient amount to make enough sauce. which pushed me to the corner store. Corner shops do not usually have sweet cream because too few people living next to corner shops use it and therefore it is not profitable to bring it. Which sends us to the hypermarket. I guess we don't always have time for the hypermarket.

Therefore, we resort to the emergency solution, a tube of melted cheese.

For extra flavor I used a healthy spoonful of pesto, also for purchase, a ripe and well-bound pesto with basil and pine seeds.

I also used 150 grams of bacon, which I browned in the pan.

I poured the cream over the bacon, added the melted cheese and pesto and mixed well. The pan should be kept on low heat so that the sauce drops easily, without haste.

I put the cooked pasta in the sauce, stirred and turned off the heat. Boil the pasta in water with a little salt. If you follow the instructions on the package, you can't go wrong.

Next to the pasta I put a glass of wine from the Danube. It wasn't bad, but I'll tell you the truth, I drank much better wines at half price. I still can't understand why a low-budget Romanian wine is much inferior to a Chilean wine that costs twice as much even if it has crossed half the globe to reach us.

Anyway, the pasta wasn't half as bad as I expected. I'm kidding, I expected them to be very tasty, which is what happened.


Baked polenta with cheese and bacon

Today I propose a more traditional dish: polenta with bacon and baked bellows cheese.
We use the forms of cakes that we dress, on the inside with slices of bacon:

The polenta is made separately, according to the classic recipe, after which, while it has not yet hardened, it is poured into the shapes lined with bacon:

Over the polenta put the cut and fried pieces of bacon and bellows cheese.

Cover the polenta with slices of bacon, like the petals of a closing flower, then wrap each dish in foil and bake for about 10 minutes.

Muffins with bacon and cheese

Recently, Leerdammer cheese was launched in Romania, a Dutch cheese very popular in other countries, which contains varieties of matured, semi-hard cheese. I've already tried a few assortments of this cheese and keep using it in sandwiches (especially since they are nicely sliced), but my favorite remains the whole version, which I used in the recipe below.

2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
250 gr flour
1 and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

180 gr sour cream
70 gr ripened cheese
approx. 10 slices of bacon

40 gr grated cheese
a few rosemary leaves

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and fry the bacon in the pan until crispy. Take it out on a plate on which you put a paper napkin.
Mix the flour with the baking powder and salt.

Beat the butter with the eggs and sugar. Add alternately flour, oil and sour cream, until you finish the ingredients and you have a beautiful and homogeneous dough.

Add the finely chopped cheese and the fried and chopped bacon. Mix lightly and pour the dough into muffin tins.
Sprinkle grated cheese and rosemary on top.

Bake for about 15 minutes, until brown on the outside, but not too dry on the inside. They are perfectly warm, but can also be eaten cold.
