B.L.T. Pasta – I’ll Have the Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato…Hold the Sandwich

I love Twitter for many reasons, but stumbling upon recipe
ideas is probably my favorite. I recently saw a picture posted by my friend,
Mardi from eat. live. travel. write, for something called, “BLT Pasta,” and I
immediately had one of those, “why didn’t I think of that” moments. By the way,
I have four or five of those moments a day.

Since I get so many food wishes for pasta recipes, I figured
I would give it a go. Plus, as luck would have it, I had some arugula in the
fridge just begging to be used. I knew that this combination would taste great,
but I wasn’t prepared for just how great.

I decided to use crème fraiche as the main sauce ingredient,
and it worked beautifully. It was just rich enough, and the fermented cream’s
subtle nuttiness was an excellent foil for the smoky meat, sweet tomatoes, and
bitter greens. As I mentioned in the video, crème fraiche is pretty easy to
find, but of course we’ll encourage you to follow this link and make your own.

If you can’t find or make some, just use heavy cream along
with a squeeze of lemon juice to mimic that essential tanginess. Thank
you Mardi (and Twitter) for the inspiration, and if you’re looking for a quick,
easy, and very summery pasta idea, I hope you give this a try soon. Enjoy!

Ingredients for 4 portions:
1 tbsp olive oil
8 oz bacon
2 garlic cloves minced
2 tsp lemon zest
2/3 cup crème fraiche
2 cups halved cheery tomatoes
3-4 cups roughly chopped arugula or other salad greens
2 cups macaroni, cooked, drained
grated Parmesan
