Why You’ll Love This Recipe!
Simple, fast, easy, yet flavorful pasta dishes are always popular, especially for a quick lunch or easy weeknight meal. With only 5 ingredients (+ salt and pepper) and 30 minutes, you can have a pasta dish that bursts with flavor that you will make over and over again.
In addition, you likely already have most of these ingredients in your pantry. That is how I came up with the recipe. Two days after Thanksgiving, we did not want to look at another piece of turkey, dressing, or mashed potatoes. I wanted something different, but didn’t want to spend a lot of time preparing it. I had a jar of Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto in the refrigerator, as well as spaghetti, bacon, and parmesan. This dish was created solely based on what I had on hand.

How To Make Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Pasta
It turned out to be so easy to make. Boil the spaghetti per the instructions on the box. Meanwhile, cook the bacon. I like to cook it in the oven because it cooks evenly without curling and does not make a mess. However, it would certainly work cooking it in the skillet as well. Either way will be fine.
In a large bowl, add the spaghetti and spoon in the sun-dried tomato pesto. Stir until the pesto covers all the pasta. Toss in the bacon, dried parsley, and parmesan cheese. Sprinkle with salt and cracked black pepper. Serve and enjoy!
