Top Review by Karen Elizabeth

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
