 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         fettucine -- or tagliatelle
    6 1/2  ounces        prosciutto -- or turkey bacon
    1      tablespoon    canola oil -- butter flavored
    1      tablespoon    virgin olive oil
    6      tablespoons   basil leaves -- shredded
    1      large         radicchio -- head, shredded
                         salt and pepper -- to taste
    3      tablespoons   asiago Cheese -- shavings
 
 PASTA POT - cook pasta until al dente. Drain well. Toss with butter flavored
canola.
 LARGE SKILLET or WOK - Fry prosciutto or bacon until crisp; add a little olive
oil, as needed, to prevent sticking.
 
 Option #1:  Combine the herb (s), radicchio, cheese, pepper and meat in a serving
bowl and toss. Add hot “buttered” pasta and toss. Distribute servings to heated
bowls. Top with cheese.
 
 Option #2:  Push meat aside in the wok or skillet and stir fry radicchio and
herbs for about 3 minutes, until just wilted and the “cranberry” color darkens
(“maroon”).  Add the pasta to the wok. Toss. Salt and pepper to taste. Transfer
to a heated serving bowl. Top with cheese: some shavings, some grated.
 
 VARIATIONS:  __Any long stranded pasta.  __Harlequin pasta: plain, beet and
spinach.  __Equal amounts of linguine and angel hair.  Note the different cooking
times on package.  __Shorten the pasta:  break length in two.  __Equal amounts of
fresh basil, or lemon basil and fresh tarragon.  __Good quality turkey bacon
instead of prosciutto. Cut  bacon into squarish pieces; then fry.
