Sauces & Stuff
Bacon and pesto are a match made in heaven — so why not mix them together?! This Bacon Pesto is THE pasta sauce for the avid bacon lover.
Cook bacon in a sauté pan until crisp; transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Reserve 2 Tbsp. drippings.
Pulse bacon, spinach, basil, Parmesan, vinegar, and pepper flakes in a food processor until it forms a paste. With machine running, drizzle in oil and reserved bacon drippings; process until smooth. Season pesto with salt and pepper.
