{good}things moment: pasta for one!

i was sitting on my couch tonight wondering why i was so hungry when it dawned on me... i hadn't eaten all day. and since i only had random items of food left in the fridge (didn't bother to go grocery shopping this weekend), i had to improvise. thus was born my first very own recipe! and to my surprise... it didn't suck. here it is:

sauteed bacon and mushroom pasta with avocado

cute little red plates do add a little something-something, but they are not a requirement ;)

how to:

4 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp favorite seasoning {i used an italian mix, but i'm sure your fave is delicious!)
6 slices of bacon
1 & 1/2 cups chopped mushrooms
handful of wheat spaghetti noodles (break them in half for easier cooking/eating)
sprinkle of parmesan

start heating water to a boil for the noodles. chop the bacon into smaller sections. combine bacon, olive oil, seasoning, and mushrooms in a medium saucepan. saute on medium-high. while these are sauteing, cook the pasta (app. 5 minutes). strain pasta (but do not rinse).

to serve (1-2 ppl):
spoon mushroom-bacon mix onto the pasta. sprinkle or grate parmesan over the pasta. slice one avocado and place slices around the edges of plate as yummy garnish. sprinkle avocado with salt if desired.

presto. ENJOY!
