Super Easy Cheesy Bacon Pasta

I have a new favorite cookbook. It is the Pioneer Woman cookbook. Not only are her recipes really good but she has step by step pictures; which I absolutely love. So Hannah and I decided to try taking step by step pictures to a recipe. It was an interesting experience for sure. Trying to balance taking decent pictures, remembering all the ingredients and not burn the food all at once was certainly a challenge. Here is the recipe

4 10oz. cans of diced tomatos
2 garlic cloves
2 TBSP. Olive Oil
1 tsp. dried parsley
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried oregeno
3\4 tsp. salt
1\2 tsp. sugar
a sprinkle of pepper
1\4 c. heavy whipping cream
10 strips of bacon
Parmesan cheese

 1. Cook bacon


2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

3. Chop garlic into small pieces.
4. In a LARGE frying pan cook garlic in olive oil till brown.
5. Add noodles to the water and cook till tender.

  1. Hi Emilie! Looks like a very interesting recipe! I'll have to try it! :) See you all this Sunday, if I'm well! :)

    1. Hi Hanna If you try it tell me what you think. i missed seeing you on Sunday.

  2. Anything with bacon usually sounds good to me. :P

    1. Yeah bacon makes a lot of things better. Have you ever tried dark chocolate with bacon? It is sooo good even though it sounds kind of weird.

    2. Yes, I have actually. I had a doughnut a couple mounts ago with a strip of bacon on it.
      Nothing beats bacon, except more bacon. And ya know, every time I eat bacon I get thirsty... for more bacon.
