“I was watching 30-minute Meals yesterday and thought this looked prettty good. I realized that I even had all of the ingredients... Then, within an hour we had unexpected dinner guests, and what do you suppose I made?! Everyone enjoyed it served with Rachel's Basalmic Browned Butter over Tilapia (also posted).”

  3. Add onions, garlic, bay leaf and mushroom and sauté until soft.
  4. Add salt, pepper and tomatoes.
  5. Simmer on low for about 15 minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and stir in the frozen peas.
  7. Return to heat and add marscapone and bring to a bubble.
  8. Taste and adjust seasoning, if needed.
  9. Mix pasta into sauce.
  10. Just before serving, add basil to the pasta and mix through.
  11. Healthier Ideas: Try dropping the bacon to 2 slices and omit oil.
  12. Variation: Consider dropping the bacon and oil altogether, then add some type of pork to create a hearty, one-dish meal. YUM!
