Yummy Pasta Recipe
If you are like me and shop with coupons... really shop with coupons you have stock piled on pasta.
I found the following recipe on Mueller's website. It is easy. I'm going to write a bit different directions then they have on the website. That way if you are in a rush like I was you won't be stirring forever like I was waiting for the sauce to thicken. Also this will feed an army. I have soooo much left over.
Tax Day Tomato Bacon Rotini
6 ounces Rotini
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup all- purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cup grated cheese
8 slices of bacon, cooked adn crumbled
2 medium tomatoes, chopped (you can use some of those canned chopped tomatoes)
1. Cook Pasta according to package directions. Drain, cover and set aside.
2. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Slowly blend in milk. Cook stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly.
3. Add in cheese, bacon, tomatoes and pasta; toss to coat.
4. Heat through and serve immediately.
Time saving hint. While cooking pasta. Microwave bacon and start sauce.
Below is a picture of my creation. :) Have fun cooking!
