Spicy Red Sauce Pasta

Make this. Just do it. Then invite me over so I can have some. It is delicious. I think Matt would eat this every night. Ok, maybe every other night.

Spicy Red Sauce Pasta
Serves: 2

2 cups penne pasta
6 slices cooked bacon, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup red onion, diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 can diced tomatoes (Del monte with green peppers and onions) UNdrained
1/4+ teaspoon red pepper flakes (or more depending on how new and potent)
1/4+ teaspoon dried basil
1/4 cup half and half
Parmesan or mozzarella cheese

1. Cook the pasta like the box tells you.

2. Meanwhile, in a large skilled combine olive oil, garlic, and onion. Saute until onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Add in the cooked bacon for a couple minutes. Add tomatoes, basil, and red pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes, squishing the tomatoes as you cook. Add the half and half and stir.

3. Plate the pasta and pour sauce over top. Sprinkle on parm or mozz as desired.
