Creamy Tomato Basil Pasta with Beef and Bacon!!!

**UPDATE** So we LOVED this meal!! I didn’t know if the hubby would like it because he usually likes more tomato based sauces over creamy ones…but he totally dug it!! He said that this has to be added to our meal rotation…so that’s always a good sign!!



So while grocery shopping a couple of nights ago, I grabbed a package of ground beef. There just so happened to be a coupon for the Philadelphia Cooking Creme on the pack, so I decided now would be a good time to give it a shot. Well today I sat down and figured out how I’m going to use it, and I think it will turn out pretty good. I am going to share the recipe now, and post a picture of  the result later tonight!! This is super simple and doesn’t look like it will take long at all to prepare!

“Creamy Tomato Basil Pasta with Beef and Bacon”

You will need:

  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1 10oz container Philadelphia tomato basil cooking creme
  • 1 package of your favorite pasta
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 2 tbsp red pepper flake
  • Parmesan cheese

Dice bacon while raw and cook in skillet over medium heat until crispy. Drain on paper towel and set aside. You can then start your water to boil for the pasta. While that is heating, brown your ground beef (just use the bacon pan, and season with salt and pepper). When your pasta is cooked, drain and return it to the pot. Add your ground beef, and 10oz container of cooking creme and red pepper flake.  Heat on low to combine ingredients. Garnish portions with Bacon and parmesan cheese.

I seriously can’t wait to try this out tonight!
