Bacon-Pasta Rustica recipe

Very flavorful but a little lacking in color so next time, I'll add corn and perhaps carrots.

What You Need

2
cups  rotini pasta, uncooked
4
slices  OSCAR MAYER Butcher Thick Cut Applewood Smoked Bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
1
cup  grape tomatoes, halved
2
cloves  garlic, chopped
1/4
cup  dry white wine
1/4
cup  fresh basil, thinly sliced
1/4
cup  KRAFT Shredded Parmesan Cheese
 Black pepper to taste

Make It

COOK pasta as directed on package, omitting salt.

MEANWHILE, cook and stir bacon in large nonstick skillet on medium heat 14 min. or until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet with slotted spoon, reserving 1 Tbsp. drippings in skillet. Drain bacon on paper towels. Add tomatoes and garlic to drippings in skillet; cook 1 min. or just until garlic starts to brown.

DRAIN pasta. Add to skillet with wine; cook 2 min., stirring occasionally. Stir in remaining ingredients.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Non-Alcoholic Variation
When draining the cooked pasta, reserve 1/4 of the pasta cooking water. Use instead of the wine.
Substitute
Prepare using whole wheat, whole grain or gluten-free pasta.
Variation
Substitute yellow or red cherry tomatoes for the grape tomatoes. Or, use 1/2 cup of each colored tomato.
