Tips How To Cook Perfect Pasta

  1. Use a large pot. Pick a roomy pot that gives the pasta plenty of space to move.
  2. Load up the pot with lots of water. You want five or six quarts for a standard package of pasta.
  3. Salt the water. Then salt, salt, and salt again! Don’t just give a single tap of the shaker—you want to use at least a tablespoon.
  4. Bring the water to a full, rolling boil
  5. Keep stirring. The benefit: Occasionally stirring the pot will keep your pasta from clumping.
  6. Test the pasta two minutes before it’s “ready” No matter your preference, it’s better to err on the side of al dente, as overcooked pasta will break down and become mush.

    So- as this is now in a regular rotation in our house, I thought I’d share a few variations:
    ground sausage browned/crumbled in place of the bacon. I used sweet/mild kind.I
    bratwurst sausage(fresh kind I used Johnsonville original)- I had a ton of leftovers from a cook out. I diced the cooked brats up and put in this recipe. very good. I’ve also made it from raw brats- remove the casing, and brown/crumble the sausage.
    smoked sausage- slice, dice and toss it in.
    ham- slice and dice and toss it in.
    cooked chicken- slice and diced or shredded
    The only thing i haven’t used is browned hamburger. That’s next.

    The recipe does not state when to add the diced tomatoes and peppers, although your picture tutorial does. There is also no oven temperature given anywhere. I am guessing it’s 350. Looking forward to making this for dinner tonight.

    This turned out really really good! I didn’t have diced tomatoes and chilis, so I just left that out. My 10yr is a picky eater that is just starting to venture out in food. She loved this!!!!!! It was creamy, hint of spice and lots of bacony goodness!
    She’s been perusing the older recipes here to find another one she wants to try.

  5. I’m a man who loves bacon + Cheese + Mexican. This is a homrun in my book! My wife says her love language is bacon. The family is going to love this winner! And now we are starting to buy almost everything organic I’ll have to check out the Imagine product line. We are getting freaked out by not eating organic foods these days.
