bowties-with-bacon-3

This little pasta dish was so darn easy to make that I’m almost embarrassed to tell you about it.  Seriously.  It took hardly any time, much less skill, at all.  But then I realized that it is precisely because of the dish’s simplicity that I had to share it with you.   Because if your life is anything like my crazy, hectic one,  a simple, mindless pasta recipe in the middle of the week might be just the thing you need to keep you from diving off the deep end and into that big bowl of leftover Halloween candy still sitting on your dining room table.  Go on, admit it.   I know you’ve been sneaking those little fun size Snickers bars.  But, don’t worry.  I won’t tell, because I’ve been sneaking them too.  And the M & Ms.  And the Milk Duds.  And the…..well, you get the picture.  The point is, that even though this pasta dish contains no chocolate, it’s comforting, satisfying and very tasty.  Did I mention that it has bacon in it too?

If you’re feeling really daring like I was, you can also fry up some bacon to toss in the mix. No fancy bells and whistles here. Yet, once I began thinking about this guileless little dish, I couldn’t stop!
