When it comes to food choices, my family’s first choice is definitively pasta. This sauce is the successful result of finding something different to enjoy it. Do not wait to try it as well!
500 g agnolotti – or any pasta of your preference, stuffed or plain …
6 bacon slices, finely chopped
1 tomato, peeled and diced
½ cup sun-dried tomatoes (oil preserved or soaked in water if dehydrated), chopped
½ cup fresh sage, finely chopped — stripped from stems
¼ cup fresh chives, finely chopped
¼ cup olive oil
freshly ground black pepper
¾ cup grated parmesan cheese
Cook pasta al dente according to package directions. Drain and keep warm.
While the pasta is cooking, use a non-stick frying pan to cook bacon until starting to crisp. Stir in tomato and sun-dried tomatoes and cook for another 5 min, then add sage, chives and olive oil, and cook for 5 more min. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.
Add the drained pasta to the sauce, toss to coat. Allow the pasta to reheat for 2-3 minutes and for the sauce to be absorbed.
Sprinkle parmesan cheese.
Serve immediately with extra parmesan on the side.
