Who doesn't love BLT's? Here's a yummy twist on an old favorite from The Pampered Chef's Spring/Summer 2010 Season's Best Recipe Collection.
Heat (either on stove or in microwave) the diced tomatoes and chicken broth until hot.
Meanwhile cut bacon into 1/4 inch strips and cooke over medium-high heat 8-9 minutes or until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet; drain on paper towels. Drain skillet, leaving 1 tbsp drippings. Saute garlic, and pepper flakes for 10-15 seconds or until fregrant. Add onion and cook for 2-3 minutes. Carefully add broth mixture, uncooked pasta, half of bacon, and salt. Simmer covered 9-10 minutes or until pasta is almost cooked, but still firm, stirring occasionally.
Remove skillet from heat stir in parsley, reserving 1 tbsp for garnish; cream cheese, and grape tomatoes. Let stand, covered for 5 minutes or until pasta is tender and sauce is thickened.
Serve with remaining bacon, Parmesan cheese and reserved parsley.

kiccole7 1y agoI never would have imagined the savory flavors of this dish would be so palatable. It tasted like a dish from a high-end restaurant. Everything was perfect. I served mine with grilled tilapia. Can't wait to share with friends at church!
