But almost none of the ingredients are the same:
I started with mostly cooked bacon (I keep it in the freezer). I diced it fine and started frying it.
Next, diced onions and peppers were added - doing the blotting thing with the towel.
When they were cooked, in went the mostly cooked penne.
Coffee cream, frozen corn and fresh ground pepper went in next.
When the cream was mostly soaked into the penne, tomatoes, fresh basil and parsley were stirred in.
I forgot the parm. I meant to parm.
*shrug* It tasted really good without it.
