Pasta is what is for dinner!
HyVee has a recipe magazine, and the summer issue was fantastic. I found this pasta dish, and it is absolutely delicious. What's not to love with mozzarella cheese and Circle B Ranch Hickory Smoked Bacon?
10 oz. penne pasta
3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 large shallot, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups chopped heirloom tomatoes
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
8 oz. Mozzarella pearls, drained
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
2 cups spinach
Cook penne pasta according to package directions. Drain and keep warm.
Heat 3 Tbsp. olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and shallot; cook until softened, about 2 minutes. Stir in chopped heirloom tomatoes, salt and pepper. Cook for 4 minutes or until tomatoes are softened.
Stir tomato sauce mixture, mozzarella pearls, and cherry tomatoes into hot pasta. Transfer to a serving platter. Top with spinach and the crisp crumbled bacon. Serve immediately.
