I’m in love with these flavors! I really wanted to make something a little different for dinner, but was determined to use items from my pantry instead of hitting the grocery store. I had just bought some fresh green beans from the produce section a couple days before, and everything else I had on hand. The roasted tomato flavor pairs so nicely with the bacon, and the added chewy crunch of pecans puts this dish over the top!
I’m a pasta fanatic, but after years and years of eating boring spaghetti and meatballs I almost quit eating it all together. That is, until I discovered that there are so many other ways to make prepare it. Combining olive oil, a little wine or Vermouth, and some garlic and shallots really sets a great tone for a delicious meal. Throw in some vegetables and you’re ready to eat, or Manga!
The entire family raved about this one, especially my husband. That’s always a good thing!
Incidentally, the pan I use for this recipe is my FAVORITE pan in the kitchen. It’s my ManPans wok. I use it for all my pasta and stir fry dishes and when I fry things too. LOVE it. You can read my review about it here.
