Bow Ties With Bacon

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Chilicat

This is a simple but flavorful pasta with just a hint of cream in the tomato-based sauce. It's great for those nights when you're pressed for time.

Very good and fast to prepare when not too much time is available. I had everything on hand and followed the directions exactly. I used fresh parsley as I don't like the dried. :)

  2. Add tomatoes and liquid, sugar, salt, & pepper. Over high heat, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer for 15 minutes to blend flavors.
  3. Meanwhile, cook bowtie pasta according to package directions; drain. Stir cream and parsley into tomato mixture; heat through (do not boil or mixture may curdle).
  4. To serve, spoon sauce over pasta, sprinkle with bacon and toss.
