Why I Love This Recipe

This is a simple family recipe my father used to make when I was a young on Sunday nights. Simple comfort food. :)

1 tbsp · dried parsley
½ tsp · hot red pepper flakes

2. chop bacon into small 1/2 in pieces and place in frying pan on medium heat

3. add pasta to boiling water and cook for 8 minutes ( or your until desired texture)

4. fry bacon until brown and crispy..remove from pan onto paper towel and return pan to stove
