Recipe: Linguine with Grilled Radicchio and Bacon

from Big Mouthful

2 Tbs. bacon drippings
1 Tbs. cider vinegar
1 tsp. brown sugar
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 head radicchio, washed and halved
1/2 pound cooked linguine
4 pieces cooked bacon, crumbled
1/4 cup grated good quality parmesan cheese

Mix together bacon drippings, cider vinegar, brown sugar and black pepper.  Set aside.

Spray a grill pan or outdoor grill with non-stick spray.  Place the halved head of radicchio cut side down on the  grill pan or outdoor grill.  Grill until edges are wilted, about 2 minutes.  Flip and grill the other side another minute more.

Cut the radicchio halves into bite-sized pieces.

Toss the radicchio with the warm cooked linguine, and then dress with bacon dripping mixture.   Top with the bacon crumbles and parmesan cheese and serve warm.
