Number of Servings: 3


    8 oz. Penne Pasta
    1 1/2 cup frozen chopped broccoli
    8 slices Turkey Bacon
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1/2 medium onion, chopped
    1/2 tbsp. dried red pepper flakes
    1 cup chicken broth (or 1 cup water, one chicken bouillon cube)
    1 medium tomato, diced
    1/3 cup parmesan cheese


Place penne pasta and frozen broccoli in a large pot of water. Bring to a boil and cook according to pasta directions.

Meanwhile, cook 4 slices of turkey bacon in a pan, over medium heat, until crisp. Set aside, and cook other 4 pieces. Remove the slices and dice all of the bacon (while onion is cooking).

Add olive oil and chopped onion to the warmed pan. Saute until softened, about 5 minutes. Add pepper flakes and saute for 1 minute more. Add the chicken broth and bacon to onions and heat through.

Drain the pasta and broccoli and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add the onion mixture and the diced tomatoes to the bowl and mix well. Stir in the parmesan cheese and serve.

Serves 3-4.
