Ingredients

160 g penne rigate 2 cups
22 mini-tomatoes (cherry, miniature or grape) 1 1/2 cup
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
2 slices chicken bacon, chopped 40 g
1/2 bunch arugula 80 g
50 g feta cheese, crumbled

2 tsp Parmesan cheese [optional] 2 g

Before you start

Keep the serving plates warm on the stove while you're preparing the dish.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 230°C /450°F.
  2. To save time, the sauce preparation and the pasta cooking can be done at the same time. Start cooking the pasta.
  3. Lay the mini-tomatoes on an ovenproof dish. Pour in the oil then coat the tomatoes thoroughly with it. Bake 5-7 min, until the skins split open.
  4. Meanwhile, chop the bacon and sauté the pieces in a nonstick pan over medium heat until they are crispy, then drain them on a paper towel. Rinse and dry the arugula, remove and discard the stems, then set the leaves aside.
  5. Transfer the baked tomatoes and juices to the pan, add the crumbled cheese and put the bacon pieces back into the pan. Pour the drained penne into the pan, add the arugula and toss well. Add pepper to taste, grated parmesan and serve in the warmed dishes.
