This dish can be made with any type of pasta that is your favorite. I happen to enjoy linguine, and had it in my pantry, so that’s what I used. Feel free to swap out whatever you have, and whatever is convenient. This roasted tomato bacon pasta takes approximately 30 minutes, from start to dinner, which makes it a stress-free recipe that will please the entire family any night of the week.

I’m so glad you’ve come to visit me in my Kudos Kitchen, and I hope I’ve inspired you to get cooking and baking in your own kitchen and not to be intimidated. After all, it’s just food, and it should be as fun to make, as it is to eat. You can do this! 

I’ve decided to coordinate this recipe for roasted tomato bacon pasta with one of my all time favorite aprons. It’s my “Julia Child quote” hand painted apron, and it pretty much sums up my feelings about cooking and baking. I hope it sums up your feelings as well. If it does, this might be an apron you’d enjoy wearing proudly in your kitchen:

The aprons I paint on are a high quality, stain resistant, 65/35 cotton poly blend. I paint each apron by hand with bright, vivid fabric paint and then heat set the design for durability. My hand painted aprons are completely machine washable and tumble dryable, but please no fabric softener. I love special orders. If you ever have an apron design in mind, please don’t hesitate to contact me:  to discuss your design ideas. I’ll be happy to paint and design from any photo, idea or description you send my way. To view my current designs (fabrics and glassware), please visit one of my shops: Etsy, Wazala, and Kudos Kitchen Paints. Together we give the gifts that people remember!
