  1. Cook the Pasta:
    • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

    • Remove the bacon from the skillet and set aside, leaving the bacon fat in the skillet.
  3. Cook Brussels Sprouts:
    • In the same skillet with the bacon fat, add the halved Brussels sprouts.
    • Cook the Brussels sprouts over medium heat until they are tender and caramelized, about 8-10 minutes.
    • Add minced garlic to the skillet and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  4. Combine Pasta and Brussels Sprouts:
    • Add the cooked farfalle pasta to the skillet with the Brussels sprouts and garlic.
    • Toss everything together until well combined.
    • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve:

    • Sprinkle with crispy bacon pieces on top.
    • Optionally, sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese before serving.


Fresh Vegetable Salad:

  1. Prepare Vegetables:
    • Wash and chop all the vegetables as desired.
  2. Assemble Salad:
    • In a large salad bowl, combine the mixed salad greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, red onion slices, and bell pepper slices.
  3. Dress Salad:
    • Drizzle balsamic vinaigrette dressing over the salad just before serving.
    • Toss the salad gently to coat the vegetables evenly with the dressing.
  4. Serve:
    • Serve the fresh vegetable salad alongside the farfalle pasta with Brussels sprouts and bacon.
