This week I based my menu on things I had in the cupboard. I always end up with boxes of pasta that are 3/4 or 1/2 used and than don't use them up for a long time. So, I pulled all the pasta out of the cupboard and read the recipes on the back. They all sounded good:-) So tonight we had Tomato Bacon Rotini from the back of the Mueller's Rotini Box.
16 oz Mueller's Rotini
1/4 cup margarine or butter
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 medium tomatoes, chopped
Cook the Rotini according to the package directions. Drain, cover and set aside. IN a large saucepan, melt margarine or butter. Stir in flour, salt and pepper; blend in milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and bubbly. Add in cheese, bacon, tomatoes and pasta; toss to coat. Heat through and serve immediately.
Darryl said it was the best pasta dish he's ever had.
