Pasta With Bacon and Parsley

Usually I don't post on weekends , but this week has been super busy that I didn't even have time to come near my blog.
Shyama had planned to go to Egypt for 2 months ( not for holiday but from their university for learning there) she has been so much looking forward to that but it got cancelled again as the Professor and the University didn't want to send their students there as still there is trouble in Egypt.

So instead they will be going to different places in Europe to study.
So in February and March she will be off to university in Nederlands, then to Berlin, Leipzig and even to Brussels.
So thursday we went to pick her up from Leuven and she brought all her clothes back that I think there was clothes to wash for 10 washing machine, so the last 3 days the only thing I have been doing apart from cooking was washing, ironing, wasshing and again iroining and still it is not done.

Now enough about my life of doing laundry and to this delicious recipe.

We love this pasta and I have been making this few times these months. Could be also it is such a easy dish to make.

Serves : 2

100 gm bacon ( I buy from the shop in packest which are cut into cubes)
2 medium onions chopped
2 garlic cloves chopped fine
75 ml of white wine
1/4 heaped cup of parsely chopped fine.
Pepper and salt to taste
2 tbsp of olive oil
200 gm pasta
50 to 75 gm of freshly grated paremesan cheese.

Cook the paste according to the instruction on the packet.
In the mean time,Heat the pan with olive oil and fry the onions for few minutes till they are soft, add the bacon cubes and fry for futher few minutes. Add the garlic fry for 2 minutes then add the white while and boil for few minutes till all the wine is evaporated.
Add parsely , pepper and salt and add the cooked and drained pasta.
Keep a little bit of water were the pasta is cooked as I add couple of big tbsp of this water to the pasta dish so that it is not that dry.
Serve with generous sprinkling of paremesan cheese.
