you capture-food

Photobucket

I cooked for my husband on Monday for the first time in weeks. Yeah, I'm kind of domestically challenged. Whatever. I made this. It was delicious. The kicker? I used bacon instead of ham. I think ham can suck it, but my husband's family raised hogs until he was 16, so he likes it more than most. "I can't believe I married someone that hates ham" comes out of his mouth pretty frequently (uh, dude? I didn't force you down the aisle. Also? I can't believe I married someone that plays World of Warcraft, so we're even). Anyway, bacon is a far superior pork product. Holy crap, if you only ever make one more pasta dish in your entire life, make this. It's easy and tasty, which are really the most important things when cooking, in my opinion. It called for leeks, which I've never cooked with. They were such pretty, opaque ringlets. See?
