Sausage Bacon Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

This Sausage Bacon Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta is a simple, hearty, and delicious meal which is ready in just 30 minutes.

Hello, May!

Oh well, hello May! I didn’t anticipate you so early (It seems like we were celebrating Christmas just a couple of days ago). As the matter of fact, May is my favorite month. It’s so not only because I was born this beautiful month, but it’s just about nature and mood. I like to watch everything gradually turn green and nice. The skies, the sun, the air – everything is different in spring. Food is getting brighter, lighter, and greener too. Like this asparagus.

Wait. This Sausage Bacon Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta isn’t that light and green food I’m talking about (Although I used turkey sausage to make it lighter. And then I added bacon). It would be safe to say it’s more like a comfort winter version.

Don’t be perplexed by me saying totally different things, though. As always, I have a beautiful explanation. Even two. First of all, I made this pasta in March when the weather wasn’t that nice yet. Secondly, have you been outside lately by any chance?

If it’s perfectly warm and sunny, please don’t tell me (Especially if you wish to continue us being friends). We’ve been having rather a cold and gloomy week (up to just a few degrees above zero…but trust me, it feels like below zero), with gusty winds and rains. And this nonsense isn’t going to stop!

I mean, hello May!

So I believe this pasta is an absolutely legitimate dish these days. Moreover, it’s indeed a necessary meal to go through these dark days. Pasta, sausage, bacon. Do you hear me?

Thus, if you’re unlucky to have the similar weather we’re apparently having, please make sure to indulge yourself with thisSausage Bacon Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta. Trust me, you do need it in your life.

  1. Haha, Ben – even though this Sausage Bacon Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta isn’t that light or green, it is downright delicious! And, the way I see it, that turkey sausage balances out the bacon! Such a delicious dish, no matter the season – at least, in my opinion.

  2. First of all, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEN!! When that notification popped up on FB today I was so excited for you! I love birthdays, so I’m hoping you are having a terrific one, buddy! It’s been chilly here the past few days, and I actually have the heat on in the house right now, so i’m ready for the warm weather. BUT, I’m not ready for the ALL the crazy summer heat. Like, I just want some warmth.. not full blown, sweaty summer type of warmth. If that makes sense? Anyways, LOVING this pasta!! I adore sundried tomatoes, so I love that you used them in here! I could use a vat of this right now! Cheers, buddy!

In the meantime, we get to keep munching on amazing comfort food dishes like this one, though.
