Bacon Pesto Pasta

Bacon Pesto Pasta is always a winning combo. Easy to make, flavorful, and quickly cooks in 30 minutes.

We love pesto pasta in this family. As a matter of fact this is one of Ykaie’s favorites and I made this for lunch the other day to pair with this delicious Garlic Parmesan Wings. I made it to celebrate the World Pasta Month.

Thanks to friends from Barilla Philippines who sent over their pasta and sauces last month. I was able to try their Pesto Genovese. Barilla Pesto Genovese is made from fresh basil with real Parmigiano Regiano cheese — and you can really taste it.



🍝 Barilla is the No. 1 brand in Italy.
🍝 Barilla pasta and sauces are made from natural ingredients and are free from preservatives.
🍝 Barilla pasta are made from 100% durum wheat semolina. It’s always al dente, and it doesn’t break or stick.
πŸ… Barilla red sauces are made from 100% Italian tomatoes for superior authentic taste.
🌱 Barilla Pesto Genovese is made from fresh basil with real Parmigiano Regiano cheese.

I really love this brand.

To make this Bacon Pesto Pasta, I used thick bacon which I fried until brown and crispy. Then I just added the sauce and cooked it for 30 seconds before adding the pasta. You can add more sauce or pasta water if you find it a bit dry. Then I added grated parmesan cheese. No need to add salt and pepper anymore because the sauce is already flavorful. Yum!

Thanks for dropping by today and I hope you have a great week! Ciao Bella!
