Pasta with Broccoli, Cheese and Bacon

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

This dish can be a side dish or main course and is very 'after-work' friendly. You can use any small pasta in this. I usually 'clean out the pantry' of small amounts of different pasta when making this dish.

I made this with a pound of pasta. Added some pepper flakes and drizzled some olive oil just before serving. The Parmesan I let every one do thier own. I have picky eaters! This is a quick, easy,and inexpensive meal. Thanks!
