Bacon Bruschetta Pasta

Monday, April 18, 2011

Hey hey!!!! I had a fun time buying up a few yummy ingredients at Meijers! So I decided to make some pasta with a tomato and smokey kick. This pasta is a quick make and is oh so delicious..But gets better. This sesame crusted bread my mother picked up was fantastic. It was a Sesame Semolina loaf. I made a mild spread to put on the bread because it honestly didn't need anything! Such a great meal this was. So go ahead and see for yourself. You'll thank me later =]
