Fortunately tastes was not compromised and this still ended up being a delicious dinner. I posted this recipe For-E-VER (name that movie) ago, and now I'm re-posting it because it's so simple and delicious. All the great flavors of a club sandwich tossed together in a warm pasta? You can't beat that with a stick.
1 tablespoon of oil
4-5 slices of center cut bacon, chopped, cooked and drained
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups of cooked and chopped chicken or turkey breast
8-10 roma or compari tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 cup shredded parmesan, mozzarella, or provolone
1 12 oz box bowtie pasta, cooked according to directions
1/4 cup chopped parsley
In a large skillet heat oil and add garlic. Cook for 1-2 minutes and add chopped tomatoes. Cook for another four to five minutes until tomato skins are softened. Add pasta, chicken and bacon. Cook in pan for five-eight minutes until all ingredients are heated through and well combined. Add cheese and parsley and stir until cheese melts. Serve immediately.
