~Pasta with Pink Sauce

1 lb pasta
1 lg jar spaghetti sauce
1/2 lb bacon
1/2 to 1 cup heavy cream
1 tsp. red pepper flakes

Cut raw bacon into small (1/4 to 1/2") pieces. Cook in large fry or saute pan until cooked, being sure not to overcook the bacon. Add spaghetti sauce and red pepper flakes to the pan with the bacon.

Stir, reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.

Meanwhile, prepare pasta according to package directions. Drain.

Add 1/2 cup of heavy cream to the sauce and stir. Add more cream to taste. Sauce should be thick and pink.

Top pasta with sauce and serve! As in Lady & the Tramp this would be a great romantic dinner. With a twist :)
