This pasta was inspired by a Rachael Ray recipe for an herbed pasta topped with bacon. I ended up with an easy, light, delicious pasta that I will definitely be making again soon!  It is incredibly fresh tasting and so easy to throw together.

Recipe:
4 oz whole wheat pasta
2 grilled portabella mushrooms
4 slices cooked bacon
1 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1 cup chopped parsley
1 cup chopped basil
1/2 cup chopped chives
juice of 1 lemon
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp olive oil
salt & pepper
Parmesan cheese

Cook the pasta al dente and toss with remaining ingredients! Top with some parmesan and dig in!

    Rachel really does know what she's doing, that is for sure! :)

    Emmett – al dente is cooking the pasta where it is still firm and chewy and not over cooked and mushy (thats how I like it! )
