Week 5: Easy Pasta Dish

The Recipe
1 onion
1 bell pepper
1 can tomatoes
5dl vegetable broth
200g pasta
2.5dl half-and-half (madlavningsfløde in Danish... couldn't find an English equivalent)
150g bacon
Salt, pepper, thyme, oregano, paprika

In a pot, cook bacon until crispy. Remove to a place, reserving the grease - add more oil if there wasn't much grease.
Chop onion and bell pepper and cook them for a few minutes until the onion is fragrant. Add broth, canned tomatoes and pasta. Cook until the pasta is almost done. Add half-and-half and spices and leave to simmer until the sauce as the desired consistency. Add bacon and serve.

The Verdict
Strangely bland. It would probably be better if I replaced the half-and-half with either cream cheese or real cream. As it was, it was okay, but nothing special. Might actually also be better with sausages instead of bacon.
