Pasta Recipes

Pasta recipes are some of my very favorites to create!  I developed a super simple whole wheat pasta dish that is packed with my family’s favorite ingredients. I took everyone’s favorite BLT and made it into a fun pasta….used spinach for the “L” You could also use arugula or kale. All you need is about 30 minutes for this dinner, hope you enjoy!

  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound whole wheat fettucini or spaghetti noodles

Instructions
  1. Place cherry tomatoes onto a large baking sheet lined with a silpat liner or parchment paper. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes, until tomatoes collapse. Remove and set aside.

Toss in cooked pasta then stir in bacon crumbles, baby spinach, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Toss gently and cook until heated through. Gently toss in roasted tomatoes.
