One of the best ideas ever. Inspiration came from Some the Wiser. A picture and recipe showed up on my Facebook feed this morning via Foodies Like Us. As soon as I saw it, I knew I would have to try it out. And adapt it of course.
pesto and mustard
Maybe I should call it BAT Pasta, for Bacon-Arugula-Tomato Pasta...
Cook the pasta. Fry the bacon in a pan, add some fresh garlic. Add the mushrooms when the bacon is done. Add 1/4 c red wine. Add the grape tomatoes, cook for just a few minutes. Toss the pasta with some pesto and mustard. Add a few handfuls of arugula. Add the other ingredients. The heat from the bacon/mushroom/etc will wilt the arugula.
Eat up! Pure Deliciousness.
