I took this a little further, as I cooked the bacon I slightly par-cooked the broccoli in a pot of water before adding it to the bacon, then used the water to cook penne. Once the penne was cooked, I tossed everything together for a truly scrumptious but oh-so-simple pasta dinner. I scattered a few slivered almonds on top. Thank you, Joy, this was so good! made for I Recommend tag game

Very good! I did drain the bacon fat, though.I used 1/3 c. water, covered and basically steamed for about ten minutes. I figured the scraps on the bottom of the pan, along with the bacon bits was plenty of bacon flavor, and it worked well for me Thanks for sharing! Made for Spring PAC 2013

I fixed this last night to go with our dinner and I did cut the recipe in half but ohhhhhhh so tasty. Who would have thought to add bacon! Definately a keeper. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
