I finally got the x-pole. They delivered it to my bf’s office and it came in this huge box with a lady hanging out of a pole on the cover…that was not the kind of discrete packaging I was expecting…so the secretary called up David and said “赵先生您刚收到一个铁跳舞管” (Mr. Slavich, you just got a dancing pole”)… so he went at the front desk and tried to explain that the pole wasn’t for him but for his crazy gf…Anyway, that wasn’t really a big deal, since I’m not even sure his secretary knew what pole dancing is. It was more trying to hide it from his big American boss…
So he scootered the pole back home and we started trying to install it . Whatever they say about “easy installation” it’s not true! Installing the pole took us a solid 3 hours…and at the end we didn’t even figure out how to have the fucker spin…So we ended up tired and hungry and I needed to come up with a quick idea for making dinner…something that didn’t require a cooking time longer than 20 min…all I had left in the fridge were 3 slices of bacon and a few cherry tomatoes and so this is what I made…took me 15 min to get it ready and I don’t know if it was because we were too tired and hungry but it seemed really yummy!
If you got a pole to install in your living room, this is the perfect dinner idea!
Ingredients (for 2 servings):
- 3 slices of bacon
- a few cherry tomatoes (I used 12 small)
- chilly powder
- 180 g tagliatelle pasta
- 2 tbsp Parmesan cheese
- 1 clove garlic
- salt and black pepper
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- Basil leaves
Wash and peel the skin off the tomatoes
Cut the bacon into strips
In a skillet heat some oil with garlic and saute the bacon
Cook it till it gets crispy, add black pepper and chilly powder
Add the tomatoes, salt and cook at medium – high heat until cooked. Watch out, you don’t want the sauce to dry too much, so keep an eye on that!
It wont take more than 8 minutes for the sauce to be ready at this point. Chop some fresh basil and add it to the skillet.
Meanwhile boil your tagliatelle pasta (always in salty water please) and drop it into the sauce.
Saute’ well and serve on a plate
with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese
