Who Doesn't Love Bacon?

This recipe is one of our very favorites.  I forget where I found this recipe, but it's so good.  There's a little bit of everything in it, even the kids like it.  Well, the kids don't have a choice, they eat whatever we make, but they really do like it. 

Chicken & Tomato Bowtie Stir Fry
2 c. uncooked bowtie pasta
4 slices bacon cut into 1/2"pieces
2 bonless, skinless chicken breast cut into strips
1 c. fresh baby carrots halved lengthwise
1/4 c. water
2 c.sugar snap peas
1/2 c. halved cherry tomatoes
1/2 tsp. garlic pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
6 tbs. shredded fresh parmesan cheese (fresh really does make it better)

Cook and drain pasta.  Cook and stir bacon in large skillet until browned and crisp.  Remove bacon, reserving 1 tbs. drippings in skillet.  Add chicken, cook and stir 3-5 minutes or until browned.  Add carrots and water, cover and cook 3 minutes.  Stir in sugar snap peas, tomatoes, garlic pepper and salt.  Cover and cook 3-5 minutes until veggies are tender and chicken is no longer pink.  (dont over cook the tomatoes or you'll have mush)  Stir in pasta, bacon and 4 tbs. of shredded parmesan.  Cook until fully heated.  Sprinkle with remaining parmesan cheese.  Serve with homemade garlic bread.  MMM, makes me want this for dinner!
