Kozy Up to Kris Kringle featuring Donna Fasano
It’s the holidays! Let’s celebrate with a delicious recipe. When you cook Caponata, your house will be filled with a wonderful onion, garlic, bacon aroma that will set off your salivary glands and have your family running for the dinner table. Can’t find perciatelli pasta? You can substitute fusilli, linguini, or plain spaghetti. Enjoy!
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 onions, chopped into 1/4 inch cubes
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 pound bacon slices, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 pound perciatelli pasta
1 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
3 egg yolks, beaten
Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add onions and garlic and sauté over medium heat until translucent, about eight minutes. Add bacon and cook until bacon is to desired crispness. Whisk in the heavy cream until fully incorporated. This is your sauce. Keep warm. Meanwhile, cook pasta in a pot of boiling, salted water. Cook to al dente (as per package directions). Drain pasta well and return hot pasta to pot. Add Parmesan to pasta and toss to coat. Add the egg yolks slowly, tossing the hot pasta so that all strands are coated. Place pasta onto a large platter and spoon cream sauce over top.
Serve with a green salad and fresh bread for sopping up all that creamy, rich deliciousness!

When it comes to business, Aaron Chase knows how to succeed. But when his daughter, Izzie, asks him for the perfect family Christmas, the handsome widower feels at a loss about how to make his little girl’s dream come true.

When the impish eight-year-old talks the adults into acting out a silly, make-believe wedding, young Izzie is certain the magic of the season will turn the pretend vows into the real thing. The little girl wants her daddy to have Christmas in his life–every single day.
