Cheesy Pasta with Coconut Bacon

What’s better than cheesy pasta? Cheesy Pasta with Coconut Bacon! And peas! I swear to Buddha, I could put those sweet little frozen peas in just about any pasta dish and be happy.

Especially when they’re combined with a rich, creamy cheese sauce and coconut bacon. I love those little coconut buggers, especially that little bite they have. Plus they taste like coconut and who wouldn’t like that?

The other cool thing about this dish is that it’s completely one-pot. You cook the pasta with all the other ingredients, so it’s fast and makes for easy cleanup. Pretty great for a weeknight meal, right?

    Yum! I’ve been looking for new ways to use coconut bacon. Why oh why have I never thought to add it to mac & cheese????????????

    If cheesy, bacon-y pasta doesn’t scream comfort food, I don’t know what does! I’d sure love a huge bowlful right about now on this cold, rainy autumn evening.
