BLT Pasta


  • 12 oz. small rigatoni or other short pasta
  • 1/2 lb. sliced bacon (about 9 slices)
  • 1 medium Red Onion
  • 1 pt. Grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 bunch arugula, thick stems discarded

Step 1
Cook the pasta according to package directions; drain and return it to the pot.

Step 2
Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes; transfer to a paper towel--lined plate. Break into pieces.

Step 3
Discard all but 2 Tbsp of the drippings and return the skillet to medium heat. Add the onion, season with 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the tomatoes and arugula and cook, tossing, for 1 minute.

Step 4
Toss the onion-tomato mixture with the pasta and fold in the bacon. Serve hot or at room temperature.
