I love this:
I also love this Pasta dish that’s chock full of fun flavor.
You cannot go wrong with bacon. Cream is a given goodie. Sun-dried tomatoes….definitely.
What makes this recipe (my own…can you believe that?) really special though, is the sweet/hot addition of Peppadew peppers. I just love them. Feel free to substitute roasted red peppers or to omit completely.
Here’s to a great week!

4. Toss pasta with sauce. Top with bacon and a sprinkle of Parmesan.
Here’s a smooth song to ease us into the week. I love its classic rock anthemic feel.
Check out Huck Finn on Soundcloud, where you can also buy the music. Here is a good interview with the band.
Hey, made this pasta tonite, except I used piquillo peppers (cuz I already had in my frig). And threw in some roasted chicken, also left over, into the mix! Yummy recipe!! Must be all the bacon and cream. Yeah!
