  • Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high until browned, about 7 minutes, pouring off and reserving fat halfway through. With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towels.

  • Add frisee to skillet and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring, until frisee just begins to wilt, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Stir in vinegar and transfer to bowl with pasta (reserve skillet). Add pasta water and toss to combine.

  • Return skillet to medium heat and add reserved bacon fat. Working in two batches, fry eggs until whites are just set and edges are golden brown, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve pasta topped with Parmesan (if desired) and a fried egg.

I made this last night with kale instead of frisee. It was a big hit with my two teenage boys and husband. The only thing I would recommend is to DOUBLE the recipe if you are feeding teens. DELICIOUS!

I didn't know what Frisee was either. So I looked it up on Worldwide Gourmet: An edible plant with long, wide leaves in shades of green or sometimes red, or simply edged with red. As its name suggests, frisn n e is a curly lettuce whose long tender leaves are joined to a short whitish stem which somewhat resembles the base of the fennel plant. So basically, it's a fancy head of lettuce.
