1 pound cooked pasta
3 slices thick-sliced bacon, diced
1 bunch mizuna, roughly chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
3 T. mustard
3 T red wine vinegar
2 T. lemon juice
3 T. olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Cook bacon and drain.  Heat olive oil over medium heat and add onion, garlic, and red wine vinegar.  Cook for 5 or 6

minutes, or until onions begin to carmelize.

Add walnuts, mustard, lemon juice, and tomato and cook until tomato begins to dissolve, about 4 minutes.  Add mizuna

and cook just until it wilts.  Season.

Serve over pasta and sprinkle with shaved Parmesan.
