Pork, Bacon, and Onion Pasta

Wanda Leech


If you like sausage and bacon you're going to love this. My family loves it. I hope yours will too. I like to serve it with garlic bread and a salad.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

The pork and bacon ingredients caught our eye in this recipe, what a great combination of flavors. Balsamic vinegar and cooking the onions add a bit of sweetness. There's a slight bite from the pepper flakes, but it's not overpowering. Serve with a salad and you have a dinner that's easy enough for a weeknight but impressive enough for company.
