Not very often do I ever pull off a recipe to try BUT this one, on facebook recently, really caught my eye and taste buds. I should have been born Italian for my love of anything made with pasta and here we go.
When I forwarded this to Don with the words ‘yum. yum. yum’ he wanted to try it as well. Last night we did and here it is again. It is SO rich but Oh So awesome!
- 2 wheels of Camembert cheese
- white wine
- 2 garlic cloves, grated
- 4 slices of bacon
- 1 tbsp. caramelized onion (for Don)
- Spaghetti for two
We used two wheels as they were small and also that Don was putting the onion in his.
You cut a circle off the top of the cheese wheel, leaving a 1/4 inch edge. Dice the bacon and cook until really crisp and drain well.
Pour enough wine in to make it level (probably 2 tbsp.) Place 1 slice approximately of bacon lard ons on top of each wheel, reserving the balance. Cook off the grated garlic and, for Don, the onion as well.
Replace the top of the cheese wheel and place in a 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes.
While the cheese is in the oven, cook your spaghetti and drain well. Remove the cheese from the oven, and carefully peel back the top. Sprinkle the remaining 1 slice of chopped crisp bacon on each wheel. Now, with tongs, pick a small amount of the spaghetti and gently roll in into the wheel, turning over and over to coat well. Place on a plate and continue this step until your plate is full (to what you would normally eat).
Pour a glass of the white wine (if you wish) and you will drool, groan and almost lick your plate clean.
