Vegetable-Bacon Carbonara Pasta

(An egg-free variation of carbonara pasta rich in colorful vegetables and tasty bacon)

Ingredients: Box of short pasta (fusili, farfalle or penne), (organic) bacon, carrots, frozen peas and/or lima beans, onion, milk, flour, grated parmesan.

Cook 6-10 strips of bacon; remove from pan to cool and then crumble into small pieces. Do not discard the bacon fat! Use it to prepare a sauce by stirring in 3-4 tablespoons of flour, then gradually adding 1 cup of milk while stirring until thickened. Add salt and pepper to taste (I also add curry powder for its flavor and warm yellow color).

In a medium sauce-pan, saute thinly sliced onion, then add 2-3 thinly sliced carrots and stir until slightly carmellized. Add 1-2 cups frozen peas and/or lima beans, cover and cook on medium-low heat until tender. Feel free to add any other vegetables (broccoli, green beans, zucchini, etc.) your family likes!

Cook pasta al dente according to instructions on the box; drain but do not rinse. Immediately pour sauce over pasta, add cooked vegetables and bacon, sprinkle parmesan to taste and mix well. Best while warm; serves 6 or more.

I promised a chocolate cake recipe -- this one is fabulous and has NO CHOLESTEROL if you use skim milk.


3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/3 cup cocoa

Use a fairly big bowl. Mix dry ingredients thoroughly. Make well -- a depression in the middle of the dry ingredients. Add:

3/4 cup salad oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups milk *
2 tbsp. vinegar
(2 eggs -- optional)

Mix until no lumps. Pour into ungreased cake pans. Makes 3 - 9" circular pans, 2 - 9" square pans, or a big flat cake pan, at least 11" x 14". Bake at 375ºF for twenty to thirty minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. If this cake is baked too long it gets dry.

*If you have milk that is a little "off" (smells bad, tastes a little funny, but has no lumps), you can use it and omit the vinegar. By the time it gets really smelly and has curds, it will impart some of that cheesy smell to the cake. Not desirable.

Most pumpkins are sold as decor around Halloween, are carved up and then tossed. For a small pumpkin (6-10 inches in diameter) here's an elegant way to serve it. I usually make rice and a tossed salad to go with this.

Preheat oven to 350ºF, or find a steamer to support the pumpkin in a big pot above about 1 1/2 inches of water.

Wash the pumpkin and dry. With a small paring knife, cut a "lid" around the stem, so there is an opening at least 4 inches in diameter. Carefully pull the stem end off the rest of the pumpkin. Remove all seeds and strings, and set aside in a colander. (see Pepitas recipe for what to do with seeds).

Mix in a bowl:

1 cup chopped or ground walnuts
2 small hot peppers minced
1 large or 2 small green peppers minced
1 can (12 oz) pinto beans or black beans with juice from can
1 tsp. fresh or dried tarragon
dash of black pepper.
(OPTIONAL -- 1/2 cup cubes of cheese...brie, Monterey jack, mozzarella)

Put the stuffing into the pumpkin. Replace the "lid" and set on a steamer in a large pot, or into a baking dish. Steam or bake until a knife can easily be inserted into the pumpkin.

Take the seeds from one pumpkin, wash thoroughly removing any strings or other slimy stuff from inside the pumpkin. Put in a pie plate or small baking pan, shake 1 teaspoon salt over them and stir, so that the salt melts in the dampness from washing the seeds. Put the pan in the oven at 350 degrees (OK to do while baking the stuffed pumpkin), and stir regularly, about every 10 minutes. The seeds will tend to stick together at first, then a few will begin to pop, and they are done when they turn golden brown. These beat store bought pumpkin seeds by a mile.

BRAN MUFFINS -- makes about 18 muffins

1 and 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 and 1/2 cups flaky wheat bran
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/3 cup vegetable oil
½ cup honey or molasses
2 cups milk
1/2 cup raisins
(1/2 teaspoon cinnamon)
(1/8 teaspoon nutmeg and/or allspice)

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Thoroughly butter or line muffin tins with cupcake papers. There is so little fat in this recipe that if you don't grease the bottom of the cupcake tins these muffins will self-destruct when you try to remove them.

Combine the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Make a well in the middle of the bowl. Pour in all the liquid ingredients. Mix until there are no lumps. Add raisins. Spoon into the muffin tins. Bake at 400ºF for twenty minutes.

Let cool a bit before eating.

Great frozen then microwaved to warm.
