BLT Pasta


Bacon seems to mysteriousely dissapear once it’s cooked.  I think it’s that naughty kitchen fairy… or my hubby and kids. 🙂
I threw this together when I needed a quick pasta dinner to make and figured if I threw bacon in they would like it.  I was right.

BLT PASTA
3/4 lb bacon (about 8 thick slices)
1 medium red onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 1/2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup cream
1 lb pasta (I used campanelle, which is like torn little lasagna noodles), cooked
4 cups arugula
1 cup basil, torn
salt and pepper to taste
grated Parmesan cheese, for serving

Cook bacon and crumble, saving 1 T drippings.
Cook the pasta a minute underdone, reserving 1 cup of the pasta cooking water.
In the reserved tablespoon of drippings saute the red onion and garlic over medium high heat.
Add the tomatoes and cream and cook briefly.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
Add the pasta and let it finish cooking in the sauce, adding water as needed.
Add arugula and basil off the heat and toss together.
Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese
