Pesto Pasta

The wonderful thing about pesto is the flavor it adds to your favorite dishes, plus it’s easy to make.

  • 1/4 lb Hempler’s pepper bacon, cut into pieces
  • Half bunch asparagus, cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1/3 cup pesto (find our DIY Pesto recipe below)
  • 1 box bow tie pasta
  • Parmesan cheese

Cook bacon in frying pan. While bacon is cooking, make pasta according to package directions.

When bacon is done, add sliced asparagus and stir around for a couple of minutes.

In a large bowl, toss cooked pasta, bacon, asparagus, tomatoes and pesto until the pesto coats everything. Serve warm and garnish with Parmesan cheese.
