Spicy Miso Pasta

  • SERVES: 4
  • PREP: 15 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes

Your not-so-typical pasta dish.

If you couldn't tell from my Bacon Pad Thai recipe, we like to mix and match our food at the Teigen-Legend household. So, here we go again! Introducing my Spicy Miso Pasta, a new carb-y dish with an Asian twist. It still has the creaminess of the Parmesan and the saltiness of the bacon, but the miso gives it that umami element and, of course, I had to add some chili garlic sauce to kick up the spice. Chop up some scallions for color and you're done! Make sure to have some bread nearby so you can soak up all the leftover sauce. That's gonna be the best part.

P.S. We made a VEGAN version of Spicy Miso Pasta! Check it out at the bottom of the recipe for how to swap out the bacon, eggs, and cheese!
