Vernon Said:none pasta italian recipes?
We Answered:These are Italian Classics and simple too. If you have an aversion to Veal (I do) you can successfully substitute turkey breast slices.
I would serve either with Rainbow Chard sauteed in Olive Oil, Garlic & Red Vinegar, and a simple pasta (Penne?) with butter, garlic and your favorite italian cheese.

Alfred Said:simple italian pasta recipes??
We Answered:This is simple and easy and quite tasty....
1 lb of pasta of choice
1 whole onion
4 cloves of garlic
3 tbs of extra virgin olive oil
1/2 lb of bacon
5 button mushrooms
1 portobello mushroom
salt and pepper for taste
1 tsp of sugar
In a bowl, chop your onion then place a tsp of sugar on it and allow to sit for at least 5 minutes. In a frying pan, place the bacon and allow to turn crispy and brown, remove from frying pan and place on some paper toweling to absorb the excess oils. In the same frying pan with the bacon drippings, place the mushrooms (chopped or whole) and allow to cook then remove from frying pan. At this time, you can start boiling water for the pasta. In the frying pan, now place the onions and allow for carmalization to take place. Once your onions are carmelized, add garlic and allow them to brown, then add the mushrooms and bacon, to that also add olive oil, mix. Your pasta should be done, place in a bowl and mix in the onion/bacon mix. To this you can add cheese or eat as is....
