Ronco has been running a sweepstakes. For the past few weeks they have been challenging bloggers to come up with a recipe using their pasta. I am exited that this week, I am one of the featured bloggers.

Now let’s talk pasta. One thing my family loves is bacon. Both my husband and 7 year old ask for it on a regular basis. But being a new year, I also know that many have a resolution to eat better. This pasta combines the best of both.
Bacon Bruschetta Pasta
1/4 pound bacon, diced
3 to 4 roma tomatoes
1 tablespoon fresh diced garlic
1 tablespoon fresh diced basil
5 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cubed.
1 teaspoon olive oil
Fresh cracked pepper
Ronco whole wheat spaghetti noodles
Boil water for pasta.
While water is boiling, cook diced bacon in a pan. Drain the fat.
Add noodles to boiling water and cook about 7 minutes or until done.
Add diced tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, basil, and salt and pepper to pan
with bacon. Heat over medium heat until the tomatoes start to break down.
Remove from heat and stir in the cheese.
Spoon mixture on top of your pasta and enjoy.
Prep Time: About 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes.
Serving size: 1/2 cup, serves 4 total.
This makes a great meal that not only satisfies the entire family but the absence of heavy sauce and the addition of whole wheat pasta makes it a lighter and healthier option.
