Finely julienne the vegetables and bacon. Put all the ingredients and half the water in a pressure cooker, close the lid, and bring up to pressure. Cook under pressure for 5 minutes. Release the steam to bring down the pressure, and open the lid.
Add the rest of the water and the pasta and boil for 7 minutes. Simmer over high heat to reduce the liquid and it's done.
Keep mixing so that it doesn't burn.
Eat while piping hot. Hearty yet healthy!
Story Behind this Recipe
This came out very nicely by accident, so I wrote down what I did to remember it.
I cut the vegetables finely so they'd mix well with the pasta. You can use other vegetables besides sweet onion and spring cabbage. You don't need to break the pasta in half. If you use a pressure cooker, you can make this quickly and successfully.
