My mother gave me a cookbook called “The Best 30-Minute Recipe” a while ago in an attempt to get me to learn how to cook. I was just flipping through it when I noticed this entry in the table of contents:
* While The Pasta Cooks * Pasta with Greens * Spaghetti with Spinach, Bacon, and Toasted Bread Crumbs * Spaghetti with Greens, White Beans, Bacon, and Toasted Bread Crumbs
Let’s be honest: bacon does make vegetables taste better. Meat haters are missing out.
(That said, I <3 vegetables.)
