Pasta with bacon and beans “ one pot wonder”

Irisa Raina 9


I freeze the rest of the noodle and green bean for another use. And all the mess is done because they are already cooked.

I usually make this with frozen green peas…NEVER CANNED but was out….I think I am the only one who keeps peas in her freezer.
And I have made this with broccoli or asparagus

And if your concerned about the bacon grease, after you fry the onions and peppers, simply remove them and wipe the pan with a paper towel.
