Tomato Bacon Pasta

    40 minutes

    This is a quick throw together pasta dinner but it is surprisingly good. Sometimes I add a pinch of chilli flakes to pep it up.

    Serves: 8 

    • 450g seashell pasta
    • 500g bacon rashers, diced
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 2 (410g) tins diced tomatoes, drained
    • 300g tomato passata
    • 500ml water

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the seashells and cook until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain.
    2. Place bacon in a large deep frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook until evenly browned, stirring occasionally. Drain off most of the fat and add the onion to the frying pan. Cook and stir until transparent. Stir in the diced tomatoes, passata and water then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened to your liking. Serve sauce over pasta.

    I added a can of corn to this and I precooked the pasta before mixing it in. I also precooked the bacon and drained it then added it crumbled to the ground beef mixture while it was cooking. This rated high with my family.  -  26 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a great, easy recipe. I had a little spicy bulk sausage in the fridge so I browned that with the onion and used canned tomatoes with jalapenos, nice kick! This has become a weekly dish in our home.  -  09 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I serve this dish at least once a week. I never have leftovers. I love it.  -  12 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
