BLT Pasta

 More real food. And I know it looks simple but this recipe is real good.

The Recipe:
  • 1/2 lb pasta (I used bow tie)
  • 3 cups arugula
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 10-20 grape tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 1/4 cup creamy salad dressing (like Caesar or ranch)
  • salt and pepper

The Method
  1. Cook pasta according to directions.
  2. Cook bacon. My favorite method is baking bacon (place bacon on foil lined baking sheet, place in oven, turn oven on to 425, check after 20 minutes, bake until crispy)
  3. Mix vinegar, mayo and dressing. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Layer pasta, about 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups arugula and halved tomatoes. Drizzle dressing on top.
