Bacon and Pepper Pasta

I serve this snappy combination as either a main dish or a side dish. It gets its fresh flavor and pretty color from onions, peppers and tomatoes. — Teri Lee Rasey, Cadillac, Michigan

    This was delicious and yes, fast and easy to put together. I will make this again! My husband and I topped ours with shredded parmesan cheese as well.
