BLT Pasta

  • 5 slices thick cut bacon, sliced into pieces
  • ½ cup diced sun dried tomatoes
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 16 oz. short or medium length dried pasta
  • 6 oz. cherry or grape tomatoes
  • 3 oz. crumbled goat cheese
  • 2 cups fresh hearty greens (kale, spinach, etc.)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

In a large sauté pan, fry the bacon pieces until crisp. During the last 1-2 minutes of frying, add the sun dried tomatoes and keep stirring.

Add the chicken stock and bring to a simmer; add the pasta and cover the pan. Simmer the pasta for 10 minutes. Add the cherry or grape tomatoes and the crumbled goat cheese and stir until the cheese has melted and a creamy sauce has formed. Remove from the heat.

Add the greens and stir until they are completely wilted. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Serve hot.
