Borsetti = Little Pasta Purses

I found a new (and cute!) pasta at Safeway today! They're called Borsetti and they're basically little stuffed pasta purses, kinda like Tortellini, but cuter! It's the first time I've ever seen these and they're stuffed with Roasted Chicken and Prosciutto (Safeway brand). I was pretty sure you wouldn't really taste much of the meat since they're so tiny so I decided to add some bacon to the sauce. This was YUMMY!
Ingredients: (4 servings)

1 pkg (9 oz) of Borsetti pasta
5 slices of thick cut bacon
2 c Marinara sauce
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 c Mozzarella cheese
1/2 c Parmesan cheese


1. Cook bacon in a skillet on medium heat for about 10 minutes on each side, until crispy. Drain on paper towels.

2. Cook pasta in a large pot of salted boiling water according to package directions. Drain of most of the liquid.

3. Add Marinara sauce and pepper and turn heat down to low. Crumble bacon into the pot and mix well. Stir in Mozzarella cheese until melted.

4. Serve with Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
