Pasta & Sauce

The name of this recipe is a little deceiving. While it does include tomatoes it's not your traditional red sauce with pasta. I got this recipe from my mother and it is perfect for the end of Winter or the early days of Spring.

Ingredients:
  • 6 slices of bacon diced
  • 1 pkg of sliced mushrooms
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 lg can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 jar of Alfredo sauce
  • 1 pound of pasta
  • salt/ pepper
  • frozen peas (optional)
Directions:
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Saute bacon until fat is rendered.
  3. Add onions, garlic, and mushroom and saute until onions are soft.
  4. Add salt & pepper to taste.
  5. Stir in tomatoes* and simmer 5-8 minute.
  6. Stir in Alfredo sauce and add cooked pasta to sauce, blend well
* Optional- add frozen peas when the tomatoes are added
