"A combination of Puttanesca and Arrabbiata sauces, plus a few added ingredients, this dish makes a great main course. It's also fun to experiment with this recipe. I used rigatoni, but any pasta would work well."

  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain on paper towels, and crumble into large pieces.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the rigatoni pasta and cook until al dente, about 13 minutes. Drain, and place pasta into a large bowl.
  3. Place olive oil in another skillet, and heat over medium-high heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Mix in the bacon, red pepper flakes, tomatoes, artichokes, olives, and capers. Cook and stir until heated through, about 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Add bacon-vegetable mixture to pasta, and toss until evenly mixed. Divide between two serving plates. Sprinkle with feta cheese, and garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.

A very nice change from the ordinary, and a good use for feta (one I never would have thought of myself) thank you. I was apprehensive in making this dish for my toddler and husband, but they bo...

this was very tasty. I used applewood bacon from Trader Joes, I did not add capers or olives as I don't care for them. I did add a can of black olives and a jar of artichoke marinated in oil ...

Delicious! I loved this. Hubs, not so much. I was doubtful he'd like it, though, as he is not a fan of this type of flavor, olives, or capers. I was using up some artichokes, though, so thou...
