bowl of blt pasta


Genevieve Jerome
BLT Pasta is the ultimate comfort food and the best part is it takes less than 20-minutes to make. And yes it tastes just like the classic BLT Sandwich. Made with freshly cooked bacon, arugula, cherry tomatoes, penne pasta, and fresh Parmesan cheese, this is one pasta recipe you don’t want to miss!
