American-Italian all'Amatriciana

American-Italian all'Amatriciana
slightly adapted from 30 Minute Meals
Source Blog - Taste and Tell

1 pound whole-wheat penne pasta
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
6-12 slices lean peppered bacon, chopped (amount depends on preference)
1 large red onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 cup chicken stock
1 (28-ounce) can crushed fire roasted tomatoes
black pepper
handful of chopped flat-leaf parsley
shredded sharp white Cheddar cheese

Heat water to boil for pasta, season with salt and cook pasta to al dente.

Heat a deep skillet over medium-high heat with extra-virgin olive oil, a turn of the pan. Add bacon and crisp 4 to 5 minutes then add onions and garlic cook to soften, 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in stock then tomatoes and season with pepper to taste. Simmer sauce 15 minutes. Toss pasta with sauce and parsley. Serve with grated sharp white Cheddar.

Soo yummy! All the recipes I post are ones I've tried but I really enjoyed the sauce for this pasta dish. Super easy and fast to make.
