Tuscan Pasta

I've been trying to cook healthier the past few weeks. I found a recipe for Tuscan Pasta that I wanted to try and I finally got around to making it. I admit that I was a bit scared to taste it. As we were sitting down to eat Hubby commented that it looked unlike anything we were used to eating. It wasn't covered in cheese or dripping with sauce or just waiting to be dipped in ranch. It was completely foreign to us. After the first bite we decided foreign was good. This pasta is packed with flavor with absolutely none of the guilt. It's definitely worth a try.

Tuscan Pasta

1 lb. penne pasta (cooked)
1 cup grilled chicken (cubed)
3/4 cup bacon
1/2 cup tomato
1 clove minced garlic
1 cup Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp. fresh parsley- chopped
1/2 cup olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

In a deep sauce pan add chicken, bacon, tomatoes and olive oil. Cook on medium heat until tomatoes have softened slightly. Add cooked pasta and mix thoroughly. Add parsley and salt and pepper. Mix, cover and let sit for 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with addition Parmesan cheese.
