Pasta Peas and Bacon Recipe

Thursday, February 20, 2014

Here is an easy pasta recipe that I posted back in January of 2013 and I would love to share this recipe with you again.  This recipe does not call for a lot of ingredients and it can be made fast and in no time.  It's a family favorite in my house and I never have any leftovers.


1/2 1b. bacon - cut into small pieces
1 can peas (Save juice from can of peas for the recipe)
1 lb. box ditalini pasta
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
 grated cheese

Cut bacon into small pieces and put into a large pot.  Fry the bacon until it is crispy.  Add 1 can of peas with juice to the pot and saut√©.  Add salt and pepper to the peas and mix all together.  In another pot, cook the ditalini pasta until done according to the box directions.  You can cook a 1/2 to 1 pound box of pasta according to how much pasta you desire.  Drain pasta and add to the bacon and peas.  Mix everything together and serve.  Sprinkle with grated cheese.



I hope you try this recipe and let me know if you liked it.  Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend and don't forget to come back on Monday for my Makeup Monday Series.
