pesto penne pasta

 14.50 oz box of Penne pasta
 1 (10 ounce) jar of basil pesto
 2 cups shredded Mozarella
 1 pint grape tomatoes
 6 slices applewood smoked bacon

Preheat your oven to 350°F and spray a large casserole dish with non-stick spray. Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook pasta according to the directions on the box (boil for about 10 min).


While the pasta cooks, chop the bacon into small bits and cook in a skillet over medium- high heat until crispy. Spoon cooked bacon onto paper towel to absorb the extra fat. Rinse the tomatoes and cut each in half.


When the pasta is finished cooking, drain it in a colander. Once it is well drained, return it to the pot removed from heat and mix in the pesto, bacon and tomatoes.


Transfer the pasta to a casserole dish and bake until the cheese is melted, bubbly and golden brown on top (about 20 minutes). EAT!
