This was ok. Maybe it's just me, but I have a really hard time wrapping my head around a 'healthy' recipe that includes that much bacon and oil. Initially, I tried to stick as close to the recipe as possible, but made slight changes to keep it healthy. I halved the recipe, omitted the oil entirely (I don't see why you'd need it with greasy bacon involved), only used 1 slice of bacon, fresh tomatoes, and bow-tie pasta instead of penne. As is, it was somewhat bland. So at the last minute, I spritzed on some Fat-free Italian dressing and a dash of oregano. Better. A little garlic salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper. Better still. And then crumbled some low fat feta on top. Not bad at all. But not great. I might make this again and play around with it. It made a decent side dish to the Spicy Chicken Breasts recipe on this site and it was fairly easy to throw together. It's a good starter to something you can really tweak to your own tastes. On it's own, it's a little lacking.
