Lola's BLT Pasta

Lola doesn't have a blog, but she shared this great sounding dish with the rest of us...(sorry no photo yet, but when I make some, I'll add it here)
BLT Pasta

1/2 lb farfelle pasta
6 bacon slices
1 28-oz diced tomatoes
1/4 tsp. crushed pepper
3 c arugula or baby spinach
1 c sliced scallions
1 c thinly sliced basil
1/4 c dry white wine
1 c Parmesan

Cook pasta, al dente

Cook bacon in heavy skillet until crisp. Keep 3 TB drippings, add tomatoes and crushed pepper.

Sauté until tomatoes soft, about 2 minutes.

Add arugula, onions, 1/2 c basil and bacon.

Sauté until basil and arugula just wilts, about 2 minutes.

Stir in wine. Simmer. Add pasta, mix in 3/4 c Parmesan and rest of basil (1/2 c)

Cook until cheese melts and coats pasta about 2 minutes.

Add salt and pepper. Sprinkle with 1/4 c cheese.

Lola says..."I adapted this from a recipe I found a long time ago, but I can't remember the source. Enjoy!"
