DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare pasta according to instructions on box.
  • Spread olive oil in a large skillet and heat over medium for about 1 minute.
  • Chop canadian bacon in bite-sized pieces. Add canadian bacon, red onion, fresh green onions (with green part attached) and bell pepper in skillet and cook over medium heat 8-10 minutes until peppers start to soften.
  • Stir in basil, rosemary, cilantro, black pepper, red pepper flakes, capers and peas. Stir until well blended.
  • During last 3 minutes of cooking, stir in tomatoes.
  • Pour cheeses over top, cover, turn off heat and let sit for 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted.
  • Pour cooked pasta into large bowl and pour canadian bacon mixture over pasta.
  • I sprinkle additional parmesan cheese and fresh basil over top before serving. This was a huge hit. I served it with a really nice salad, homemade balsamic vinagrette, fresh garlic rolls, red wine and served chocolate espresso pudding in phyllo cups for dessert.
