Bacon Pesto Farfalle Pasta

From Natalie:

A tasty twist to pesto…add bacon.  Really delicious and so easy!

Ingredients:

  • 4-5 leaves fresh basil
  • 2 (small to medium sized) cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup of olive oil
  • 4 strips of bacon (I like the fully cooked bacon, less grease)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 box (14.5 oz.) Farfalle pasta
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes
  • Fresh parmesan cheese to top it off!

Using a food processor, add the basil, garlic, oil and bacon (cooked until crispy) until blended.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Boil pasta until tender.

Add pesto to pasta and toss.  Add tomatoes, sliced.  Top with fresh grated parmesan.

Enjoy!
