A note about serious food allergies

Does bacon make everything better? Decidedly no; bacon can't fix the spotty Internet, and it can't shovel snow. It can't tell the kids a bedtime story, and it certainly can't change the bad ref calls during last night's game. What it can do is add that salty, pork goodness to this already-fantastic pasta meal, a mix of meaty steak strips and fresh squash with delicious pasta. Don't put bacon in your gas tank, and don't expect it to walk the dog, but do let it work its magic in your dinner. Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top.
