Balotinto Pasta

Okay, okay.  The dish sounds horrible, but I guarantee you that it tastes good and quick to prepare!  I can't think of any other name.  So I shortened the ingredients of this dish to balotinto, which means bacon-longganisa-tinapa-tomato.

*Feel free to play with the measurements of the main ingredients.  If you want to have more tomatoes, then please add more, etc.  

Sliced tomatoes (I used cherry tomatoes here)
1 fried longganisa, chopped
3 pcs tinapang Salinas, flaked
2 slices of bacon

2 tbsps olive oil
pinch of thyme
salt and pepper to taste

cooked penne pasta good for one serving

- Cook penne pasta according to package instructions.  Wash, drain, and set aside.

- Prepare ingredients indicated above.

- Heat pan.  Render bacon on heated pan until it produces oil.  Set aside bacon.  Chop it to pieces.

- Add olive oil on the heated pan.

- Saute sliced tomatoes.  Rub thyme onto palms on top of the pan where you are sauteing tomatoes.  Add flakes of tinapang Salinas and chopped longganisa.  Saute.

- Toss in cooked penne.

- Serve with your choice of cheese and sprinkle some chopped basil or parsley if available.

Happy Cooking! :)
