The traditional way to prepare collard green always remind me a traditional Chinese dish that my dad loves. But no one likes to dive into it, except him. I think the main reason is because of the vibrant green color disappeared from the vegetables. However, it is also because of this traditional dish, it inspired me to create this bacon collard green spaghetti recipe.
People always say, "Everything tastes better with bacon." This pasta dish tastes so good that adding garlic and onion, in my opinion, just overpowers the deliciousness of bacon.
But, by all means, if you want to add garlic and/or onion, please feel free to do so. Enjoy!
If cooking bacon takes too long for you to do so, use pre-cooked bacon or bacon pieces. Replace the bacon grease with extra virgin olive oil.
1/2 pound Bacon (cut into 1/2" size)
1-2 pound Frozen Collard Green (in my opinion, more vegetables means less guilt of having bacon and pasta. So, add more collard green if you can.)
1 pinch Crushed Red Pepper
1 pound Spaghetti
Salt and pepper to taste
1 pot of water
1 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Canola Oil
